Ed’s first short film, An Act of Love, starring Stephen Mangan and Gina McKee, premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 2010 and has played at festivals around the world. His second short That Woman, starring Ben Caplan and Maureen Lipman was also successful on the festival circuit and led to his first project for television, a Little Cracker for Hillbilly / Sky 1.
