After a series of experimental short films well received by international festivals, Peter made SMALL TOWN FOLK (2007), a zero budget feature film made by himself with the help of his closest friends as cast and crew. STF sold to the home entertainment market in over 30 territories including to Lionsgate for the US. In 2010 Peter co-founded Treehouse Digital, a ‘Story Laboratory’ specializing in high concept family entertainment. In January 2016 Treehouse delivered all 75 VFX and SFX shots in the short film LITTERBUGS, the short film fully funded by Creative England and the British Film Institute under their Emerging Talent Fund. Peter currently has several family feature films and television shows in development with Mighty Atom Entertainment, Ingenious Media, and Executive Producer Tim Patterson.
