As part of the Rushes 2010 season the ICA have held a retrospective event in honour of Straight 8 films. From 10 years worth of shorts filmed on one cartridge of Super 8 and with no editing my 2008 film Robot made the selection which is a great honour.

I'll always remember seeing my completed film for the first time whilst sat in the Kodak Apartment at the Cannes Film Festival (one of the quirks of a Straight 8 film is that even as the film maker you don't get to see the finished film until it's first screening.) and although I was very proud I had no idea just how long this little film would keep going!

It has now been shown all over the world at various film festivals and even in it's third year it continues to do me proud.
