Predator: finishing off what I started when I was five.

At five years old my brother and I snuck down stairs after my parents had gone to bed and taped the film Predator off the TV, we would watch the film religiously thereafter and began creating our own version. What started out as a scene for scene re-creation soon turned into our own re-imagining, unfortunately we never finished what we had started.

So here’s my chance! With a little bit of your help I will finish off what’s been in the making for 20 years, using some of the same techniques that my brother and I started with, as well as bringing to life and realising the fantasy that we wished we were able to achieve in 1991. So please, sit down and join me at my table, as we play with remote control cars, action men, puppets and our own imaginations to complete our own version of the film Predator and finally finishing off what I started when I was five.
