While You Were Away - Comedy Short

It's not often you get to work with your heroes, but with this short film I managed to do just that. As a teenager I was obsessed with comedian Richard Herring, so when he agreed to star in my latest comedy short, directed by the BAFTA nominated Ben Mallaby and also featuring Rachel Stubbings, I was overjoyed. Thankfully the expression "never meet your heroes" didn't apply, and Richard was an absolute delight to work with. The film, which recently won the Audience Award at the ÉCU Film Festival in Paris, launched in April 2016 with a staff pick on Vimeo.
