Calavera Cafe


"A relationship of chance, torn apart by circumstance"

A Russian organised crime member falls for one of his sex traffic victims, causing an impact upon his life and the actions of his gang.

Red Traffic was where I kind of took the plunge. I quit my job and started working on this short. I look back at it fondly now and I’m still pretty pleased with it visually. I also still love the music, composed by my long time music collaborator Ash Tidball (he’s amazing)

It was a great experience and I learnt a lot, lessons which I think helped when it came to my next batch of shorts
