Argyle Crown presents…

I’m now officially also a writer and director.  AND this is the first project from my newly minted production wing, Argyle Crown.  Enjoy.

Birdwatcher is a short film I’ve had in the works for a while.  The title is slang used by British Intelligence for a spy.  The plot: dinner for two, deception for one.

The story was inspired by a painting by Alexander Pope, The Fox – Fair Game, which features in the film and poster. Other inspirations include the low-light photography in Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (below left) and 17th century Vanitas paintings (below right: Vanitas – Composition with flowers and skull by Adriaen van Utrecht).
