I have been involved (as performer) in the making of a Science Fiction Short Film called "Refuge", which has been selected by Alex Proyas (director of The Crow, Dark City, I-Robot, Gods of Egypt) for his new 2022 Streaming Platform Vidiverse. The short (by writer-director Simon Bishopp) has previously screened at Glasgow Short Film 2017; the London Sci-Fi Festival 2018; Inverness Film Festival 2018 and was selected for Film Hub Scotland's/BFI's "Shorts in Support" scheme, which aims to revive the tradition of the supporting short film by distributing eight new short films to cinemas and film societies to screen before features.

Film synopsis:
A future civilisation has travelled into their past to escape famine, war and global warming. They have come to rule us. They attempt to alter the future and reverse global warming but their actions displace millions of people.
