Working with a number of screenwriters, actors and music composers, to date Paul has made 12 independently produced and funded short film dramas mostly exploring the gentle side of human emotions, from love and lust, to loss and longing, and everything in between. From Hi-Def visual pieces, to animation/live action fusion, to experimental monochrome Super8, and most recently, the 'zoom' genre for his Lockdown Trilogy where Paul has explored more emotional narratives as both Director and Writer.
Paul's shorts have been shown at film festivals around the world. His screenplay 'Dig' was awarded semi-finalist in the London International Screenplay Competition and the three films of his Lockdown Trilogy are currently showing at festivals around the UK.
