I was recently asked to make a short film on behalf of The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital to support their fundraising appeal.

In order to make the film I collaborated with my friend, and colleague Edmond Terakopian.
Everything was done between us. Edmond shot the film and recorded the audio.
All editing, grading and post production was completed by me.
