2015 shortlisted AWGIE Awards Film Award Feature Film - Original
After the Credits 2010 single work film/TV humour 'We've seen it a hundred times before - boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back, and they live happily ever after. Until the credits roll. And after that, it's a completely different story.' (Internet Movie Database record)
2011 nominated AWGIE Awards Film Award Short Film
Shakespearialism 2006 single work drama humour

'We've all heard of William Shakespeare - right? You know - Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, Twelfth Night, Taming of the Shrew! But did you know Shakespeare had a brother? Who was also a writer? His name was Ralph Shakespeare. His writing is nothing like that of his more famous brother. In fact without the famous last name in common you'd never believe they were related.'
