Two of his short films, Trout (2007) and Tumult (2012), had their premieres at the Sundance Film Festival and were nominated for BAFTAs.

In the presence of the film crew

On the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, Dondo, a young surfer, refuses to accept the death of his fisherman dad, despite the fact he has been missing at sea for over a year. Unlike quiet and dreamy Dondo, his clever classmate Sas is never afraid of rubbing people the wrong way. Dondo and Sas’s unlikely bond will help them find their path in their rural community, through waves, beliefs, and hellfire.
