In 1995, I started working with a good friend of mine, Film Producer Jim Kreutzer - Wind Chill Media Group. Creating, producing, filming a variety of motion pictures, and meeting some great people along the way!
This page samples a few projects I have worked on as Designer, Social Media Director and occasionally appearing as an extra. Most recent, the 2016 film Tommy's Honour, which won the BAFTA -Best Feature Film
(The British Academy of Film and Television Arts).
Tommy's Honour 2016
A father wants only the best for his son, but struggles to guide him in a world that’s changing as fast as the boy himself.A son blessed with talent, fuelled by ambition, chafes at his father’s commands as he hurtles toward adulthood with all the moxie of untarnished youth. In every generation, a torch passes from father to son. And that timeless dynamic is the beating heart of TOMMY’S HONOUR – an intimate, powerfully moving tale of the real-life founders of the modern game of golf.Set in St. Andrews, Scotland during the hidebound Victorian era, the story opens in 1866 as 15-year-old TOMMY MORRIS (Jack Lowden) heads to the links with his father, TOM MORRIS (Peter Mullan). Already a legend, “Old Tom” is greens-keeper for the
Royal & Ancient golf club, where he established the standard of 18 holes per round; as well as the town’s club- and ball-maker; and thrice winner of the first major golf tournament, the Open Championship – which he founded in 1860.
Tom Morris has secured his place in the history of the ancient game. But Tommy will soon outshine him, retiring the Open’s prize Championship Belt while still in his teens (by winning it three times in a row), and, as the “dashing young man of golf,” drawing flocks of spectators to the sport and becoming its first touring pro.
Despite their shared passion, father and son repeatedly clash over the unwritten rules of social class, culminating in Tommy’s marriage to a woman of lower standing with a shameful secret in her past. Tommy’s beloved wife MEG (Ophelia Lovibond) figures in this true story’s climax, as Tom makes a fatal misjudgement that strips Tommy of everything he holds dear. From the ashes of that fateful choice, Old Tom rises to a mission that carries him through the final decades of his life: Honouring Tommy.
