Walk Or Fly is a short film I directed for BBC Wales (I also composed and performed the soundtrack). It’s a coming of age comedy drama about Mark, a boy who reacts to a personal tragedy in his own unique way, only learning to move on after falling in love.
It was produced by It’s My Shout, and originally broadcast on BBC TWO Wales in November 2012, and again on the BBC HD Channel in January 2013. It was also screened on Russian primetime TV in 2014, accessing 3m people…
