Inanimate HD remake (2015)
The original version of Inanimate was my major practical project for second-year A-level (for any non-Brits reading this, that's the stage of education that we'd be at around ages 17-18). It's a fairly simple story, told without dialogue, about a not-too-bright junior caretaker who can't figure out why his vacuum cleaner won't work. Despite some technical limitations, I got an A for it, back in the days when an A was the best grade you could get.
Several years later, just for the fun of it, I shot a new version of the film, now in HD and starring my long-time friend Tim, who also wrote the music for the remake as he has done for many of my other film projects (although not for the original Inanimate).
