My Spectacular Student Film

When Josh Janssen was planning My Spectacular Student Film, he wasn’t sure what kind of film to make. All he knew is he loved the film making process. So why not make a film about making a film?My Spectacular Student Film demonstrates what can be achieved with a high degree of focus and motivation!


Simulation is a short thriller that explores trust we put in memory. A high concept science-fiction thriller made on a low budget and selected for Top Screen 2013.


Despite the old maxim that you should never work with children or animals, Mongrel has a great performance from a kelpie! Terrific use of locations and age-appropriate actors make this an engaging short film. I challenge you not to tear up when the old man points his gun at the dog!
