Broadcast on BBC2 in the autumn, and available on iPlayer, my short The Graduation won the People’s Choice Award which is arguably what it’s all about isn’t it?

It’s is a roadmovie set in the wilderness with a disfunctional family having to come together to save themselves.

It was easy to write “middle of nowhere” but a lot harder to film – forty crew lugging equipment up a hillside in a record breaking heatwave (the script said rain but our filming dates were booked).  I momentarily felt guilty but then everyone seemed pretty happy so I just applied the factor 50, sat back and enjoyed the filming.  Magic.
