In addition to monochrome, Rohan brings colour to some of his projects to give them something different. Give us a few details and we'll get back to you quickly with an idea of Rohan's availability and fees.

Released: The Mistletoe Bride is a somewhat disappointing opener. The beautifully romantic plot and the ancient family house have great potential for a tale of terror, but the story is as lifeless as the withering corpse-bride who narrates it. Red Letter Day manages to deliver what The Mistletoe Bride does not: suspense, uncertainty and surprise. After suffering a great personal loss, the protagonist Claire travels to a remote French village in order to visit an old fortress that is rich in historic battles and bloodshed, believing she can finally be at peace there. The array of stories may be rooted in different settings across space and time, but they often have one characteristic in common: ordinary reality being touched and enlightened by the extraordinary.
