Horror

Dont-Move-01

I’ve since developed “Bloody Cuts” with the continued dedication of fellow Co-Producer / Director Anthony Melton, and Cinematographer Jonny Franklin, and have so far completed 9 short films. In doing so we’ve managed to gain a large worldwide audience of over 750,000 viewers, played at major film festivals, and received huge critical acclaim and a number of awards.
