Fancy Man

Fancy Man is a very short film - it's only 90 seconds people - that I wrote and directed for BBC Studios. 

Synopsis: Ever made eye contact with a stranger and wanted to ask them out, but the doubting voice in your head says, "what are you? Nuts?"

Well here's why you should always listen to that voice, and just join Tinder like a normal person.

UPDATE: The film will be screening as part of the BAFTA qualifying London Short Film Festival in January.
