The idea for The Trouble with Gurus came during my time in Madrid. I met with a fellow filmmaker called Xavier Keogh, and we decided to write a short film with the resources we had available to us. We brought in two actors. Luis David Rodriguez and Flor Restom to play the roles of Sam and Sophia. And I played Guru Shak myself. This is the story we came up with.


We have also won ourselves an honourable mention at the the London Worldwide International Comedy Film Festival.
