I wrote a short film based on a loose idea about autograph hunters. The script blended this strange hobby and the mixed bag of obsessives it attracts with a conflicted coming of age story.
Working with the same director, composer and design team as 'Darklight', but on a fraction of the budget, we created a funny and touching film with two fantastic central performances. I'm also proud that the West End of London is very much a character in the film.
'Mingmong' premiered at the BFI Flare Festival and went on to win several awards in festivals around the world, most notably Miami Short Film Festival, Outfilx Film Festival (Memphis), Image Nation Film Festival (Montreal), OUTshine GLBT Film Festival Fort Lauderdale.
