I've been involved in some great short films and have been lucky to work with spectacular talent.  Part of the fun is getting to wear many hats, from DOP to Art Director/Producer/Focus Puller so there's never a dull moment. There is a thriving short filmmaking community in Bristol and it's great being a part of it!
