Spirit of the Woods Short Film

My new short film “Spirit of the Woods”

Three friends visit Sham Castle and get transported to a dimension, where in the woods a ghost hunts them for their souls.

It was a lot of fun to make and I learned a lot in the process.  A lot of the time the weather, the light and locations were against us but I think we did the best we could, and ended up with something that we can all be proud of.

SPLATTERKIST 10 Years Ago!

SPLATTERKIST 10 YEARS OLD!

It’s now been 10 years since the first MorseCode Productions short film was made.  Made back in 2007 for a short film competition, which had to be no more than 5 minutes long and include a cow!  It didn’t win but was a lot of fun to make for everyone involved, which gave us the need to make more short films, some of which won a couple of awards.  As it’s been 10 years I thought I would make a poster for the occasion.
