Rain was produced at Griffith Film School as part of the 2012 graduation slate.

An Old Man and a deaf Boy live alone in the middle of a desolate wasteland of a future where it hasn't rained for 50 years. Their home exists on the outskirts of what, long ago, used to be a civilised town. But now the water is gone and the pair survives off of the last remains of a secret well beneath their home. As the well runs dry and desperate savages roam the countryside there is nowhere left to turn, the Old Man realises that their days are numbered.

Rain is currently enjoying a healthy festival run having screened at the Cannes Court Metrage, Hollyshorts Film Festival and the New York City Independent Film Festival amongst others. It has also won awards at the Pittsburgh Independent Film Festival 2013 and the Silver Wave Film Festival 2013.
