A murder mystery set in a competitive hairdressing competition. Extravagance and excess collide as the death of one of their own sows seeds of division in a community whose passion for hair verges on obsession.
Tom’s work as writer/director began with a series of short films, including Radical Hardcore, a love story about the history of British carpet making. Released via Dazed & Confused, it was selected as part of Lynne Ramsay’s Electric Shorts series, going on to win the BFI’s Network Pick Series. Following this, with the BFI’s support, Tom recently completed work on the short Pitch Black Panacea. A live action-animation hybrid that charts the progress of two patients undergoing a peculiar corrective treatment for their lazy eyes. Medusa Deluxe is Tom’s feature debut.
