Bad Tree Productions

.

I made three short films as a student in 1995-96 while on a media course in Wrexham, North Wales. It wasn’t a film course but they had some video cameras and an editing suite so I decided to make some films. The first two were Thrillers and the third one was a Fantasy film. They were all shot on video tape with a hand held camera.

THE GAME (1995)

.

The first one is called The Game starring some friends I made on the course. They’d never acted before and this was my first attempt at film making. This is the original edit from 1995 with titles added in 2021.

It’s about a group of thieves who go to a safe house to split up the money they’ve just stolen.

THE SILENT DAGGER (1996)

.

The second film was shot outdoors in the winter with the same cast. All the footage came out green so I had to do the original edit in black and white. It was re-edited in 2022 after I managed to fix the colour on VSDC. I also re-structured the film giving it a new beginning and end, a new title and a new soundtrack.

It’s about an artist who witnesses a murder.

TORQUEMADA (1996)

.

The third film was a collaboration with Nick who was an illustrator / painter. We got some drama students involved with acting experience including Nick’s brother Damian who plays the lead role. I re-edited this film in 2022 with a new soundtrack and sound effects. I also re-structured the third act to give it a better ending.

It’s about a kid who gets possessed by the Devil and an Angel is sent down to save him.
