Fear (2018)

Fear is a short film featuring Archie Westland-Rose and Malin Karp. The short follows 'Jack' a young boy terrified of the darkness found within his wardrobe. One night after much preparation Jack decides to face his fear head on by entering his wardrobe meeting a personified version of the darkness he has always feared.


Shot on the Bolex camera using 16mm black and white film.

Fear was an extremely enjoyable project for me to produce. Being able to work with a range of age groups, tackle child licensing applications and keeping a production to schedule whilst also following laws was a challenge but one I found to be throughly rewarding.



Fear is a project I will always hold close to my heart as the project that bought together a team of people I continued to work closely with throughout the remainder of University and beyond. Also staying in contact with Archie Westland-Rose and continuing to offer opportunities for him on future films I have worked on has been a joy.


This production was produced as part of coursework for my BA Film Production degree at the University for the Creative Arts.
