  • Nirvana Mall

    While in lockdown, I took part in a 24 hour playwriting challenge organised by Emberfly Theatre. The theme they gave us was ‘Utopia’. I had 12 hours to write a short monologue based around that theme before it was given to an actor to perform on camera. My monologue, Nirvana Mall, was performed by Hannah…

  • Sam: A Short Film by J. B. Pichelski & Abbigayle Bircham

    This short film has been in the works for a very long time, but I’m excited to finally release it online. It tells the story of Sam, an amateur photographer who discovers a world of new and magical subjects to photograph. I made it with artist and filmmaker Abbigayle Bircham between 2015 and 2017.

  • Auntie Rene’s Garden

    Back in 2006, my Auntie Rene asked me to film her garden for her. She was always very proud of it and spent a lot of time keeping it beautiful. I wasn’t very very good at working a camera at the time, but she didn’t seem to mind. In 2014, she passed away and as…

  • Week

    I made Week around this time last year, but didn’t feel it was worth sharing until now. At the time, I wanted to document all of the different things that I stared at during the week; all of the things that I was looking at but wasn’t processing. So I picked up my old handheld…
