His work has received international acclaim as well as being featured in Levure Litteraire.

This magnetic collection of poems and short films is a combination of live action, archive footage and superb animation filmed by Emmy Award winners Junction 15 and with students from the BA(Hons) Animation and BA(Hons) Stop Motion Animation and Puppet Making course at Staffordshire University.

The film has now completed its tour to libraries, arts centres and community venues.
