Family Values is a hilarious comedy short where we watch as a father tries to teach his two sons a lesson by faking his own death. With more twists and turns in it's seven minute running time than a James Bond film, it has left audiences across the world in stitches.

As sound designer on this film I kept it simple; letting the great script and fantastic performances speak for themselves. The result is a very natural, true to life sound design which supports the comedy rather than imposing on it. This was the first project I worked on with the boys from Ninja Milk. We've since continued working together on a number of corporate productions and their award winning short film, Cockatoo.
