A black comedy/drama about a lonely ice-cream van driver, Warren Thompson, and his unhealthy obsession with television soap starlet, Katey George.

“I was know where near prepared for how amazing it was..”

“CSV matches its lunacy with genuine pathos, imaginative direction and some truly well observed moments of very human pain.”

CSV has since been smashing the international film festival circuit with entrances into the The Chicago Horror Film FestivalPollyGrind (Las Vegas), Celluloid Screams: Sheffield Horror Film FestivalRazor Reel Fantastic Film Festival (Belgium), Muff Melbourne Underground Film Festival (Melbourne), Dead Before Dawn Festival (Scotland) and more.

With a shoe string budget I took the challenge of adding a few more skills to my bow and carried out all of the audio tasks from production to post production.  With 15 days in production over a 4 months period, post production wound up a year later and premiered at the 2013 Monster Fest which enjoyed some great reviews and sold out cinemas.78319_469656443077581_348006256_oIMG_547360692_514497501926808_455658699_nIMG_5643WP_20131016_003
