My grad film 'Sh*t Happens' has received enormous success over the last 2 years, and I would like to send out a big thanks to everyone who helped make my film possible:
Rhys Vanstone and Michael O'Sullivan for taking time out to record their amusing voices (Rhys has recently got married, congratulations my good friend!), my good friend Alec Leith for the painted backgrounds (you talented guy!), Eric Phillips for letting me use musical recordings of the Cardiff And Vale Of Glamorgan Youth Orchestra, and finally a big thanks to my brother James Grindle for being the voice of Ralph and for composing the awesome song at the end of the film.
Sh*t Happens has done the rounds; it's won a few awards and has been screened at a number of festivals internationally. Here is a list of some of them:
