ECHO
Dir: Jo Southwell

A woman walks along a coastal path calling out to her young daughter
who is playing hide and seek amongst the sand dunes. As the waves lap over the

make sense of what she is seeing.

PRESS EJECT
Dir: Lee Campbell
UK 3mins

This short poetry film explores the difficulties surrounding letting go of something/someone whilst recognising that you need to move on. It is an ode to remember to practice self-care and discard things/people who give you negative energies. They are not worth your time. The film juxtaposes imagery that I shot in the Summer of 2022 at the High Rocks National Monument, U.K with pencil drawings I made long ago of entrants queuing up to reclaim submitted artworks that were rejected from a competition.
Micro shorts. Collage. UK Premiere.

SINCOPAT
Dir: Pol Diggler
Spain 14mins

Ona, a creative executive of a large company, is about to launch the latest technological revolution into the market: a device that allows listening to music directly inside the brain.
Genre shorts.

THE CIRCLE OF LIGHT
Dir: Gabe Clarke
UK 4mins

The Circle of Light is a multimedia animation involving paper cut-out and digital hand drawn animation. On the surface, the film responds to my personal experiences with agoraphobia as well as a new found fascination with crowds and communities and all the contradictions they embody. Instinctively, my animations always respond to my subconscious so I often don’t know the true meaning behind a project until long after making. At the moment, to me, the film is really about acceptance. Acceptance of the chaos and danger of the outside world. And acceptance of my tiny, ultimately, unremarkable place within it.
Experimental. Animation.
