Ruined: A Hipster Ghost Story

What's it all about

Ruined is a comedy web series which I made to address my dual anxieties about the rise of neo Nazism, and not being cool enough to live in Dalston.

​Best friends Lucy and Owen have just bought their dream flat - but the resident Nazi ghost makes their new lives a nightmare. In the 90s this would have been the story of a fag hag and a gay best friend. In 2019 it’s a story about two mates trying to climb the London property ladder by any means necessary. This web series belongs on the internet, where it can be #halloweeneveryday

I shot six short eps of Ruined last year, and I'm currently developing two more epiosdes of Ruined to shoot in the spring. I'm always on the look out for collaborators: actors, creatives, crew and anyone with a GSOH that has access to sweet, sweet ca$h.
