Aaron has worked professionally since the late 90s in moving image, animation, music video, commercials, feature films, tv, theatre and corporate film as a motion designer, director, editor, VFX artist and animator. Mr Torquay's Holiday is his first commissioned dramatic film, being chosen from over 400 scripts in London to be funded as part of FILM LONDON'S 'BEST of BOROUGHS' SCHEME. 18 films were created as part of the scheme. At a private award event in Sept screening all 18 films @ the British Film Institute in London "Mr Torquay's Holiday" was awarded a 'Jury Special Mention Award' handed to Aaron by film producer and jury member Steven Wooley (Crying Game, Made in Dagenham etc).
The jury said: “Mr. Torquay’s Holiday is a great concept, a short with ambitions to tell a feature length story and an excellent lead performance. How should an agoraphobic face the end of the world? A big ambitious question addressed in a well made short film.
The film has since screened at the Greenhorn Festival, the London Short Film Festival and a variety of short film nights, (Vibe Shorts, S4).
Originally a drama and film graduate from Birmingham University, since then he has gained experience of every part of the film production process from script to grade. In 2011 he worked as main title designer and VFX supervisor on the feature film ‘Cleanskin’ (Warner Bros) starring Sean Bean and Charlotte Rampling. In 2009 he got his first taste of low budget film-making when he wrote, directed and edited “Cods End”, shot on a HDV camera with some friends for cast and crew. His primary passion and focus now is narrative film
making and with the success of Mr Torquay's Holiday he is currently developing two innovative feature scripts.
