'Martin Butcher, son of the late Tony Butcher and natural successor to Butcher & Sons, must step up and head the notorious family business. However, due to a horrendous childhood incident, Martin’s instincts do not tend towards the bloody butchery of animals. For the first time in years, Martin must return home, but as he becomes trapped into their meaty, madcap world, can Martin sum up the courage and escape his carnivorous family before he finds himself in for the chop?'
Butcher & Sons was screened at various festivals internationally including Beijing, Munich, Moscow and Aesthetica Film Festival. It also won the audience award at the Nahemi Eat our Shorts Film Festival.
House of Horror was a short film produced for the 2012 Virgin media shorts competition, shot across 2 days and with a micro budget. The film was shot in and around Luton with help from Clearhead and a young crew of local filmmakers.
