He then joined the MA course at the London Film School where he concentrated on directing, writing and producing, working on a number of short films in those capacities. Whilst studying, he entered the Kodak Student Commercials Awards in 2005, winning two awards for his Pilsner Urquell spot 'The Travelling Magician'.
