Set in a primary school playtime, PLASTER is a short and sweet study on the power of friendship and the imaginative freedom of childhood.

7 year old Mateo's repeated attempts at flight never quite take off. Today, a new friend Mia's unique artistic approach to TLC helps him back on his feet. Her spontaneous, innocent gesture is the turning point in this quiet, charming tale; sometimes all a kid needs is the imagination of another kid - not just a first aid kit.

Beautifully underplayed debut performances by the young cast, in this compelling, poetic short film.

This is the first short film that i wrote and produced whilst at the Brighton Film School. It was also made possible and special by the goodwill of everybody involved on and off screen.

I trained as an actor at the BAFTA Award winning Television Workshop, Nottingham. I worked with, amongst others, notable directors Shane Meadows and Alan Parker. Film making has become another way for me to create opportunities for young people in performance.

Plaster has screened at:

Cine City Film Festival 2012, Brighton,UK.

World Kids Foundation Film Festival 2012/13 'Learning In The Dark Programme', Mumbai, India.

WOW Film Festival 2013, Sydney, Australia.
