European Festival Testimonial – March 6 2019

I finished my grad film at the Royal College about two months ago, called ‘The Waves’, although it was well received and I received my MA with it, I felt strangely unsatisfied. Instead of the charcoal in ‘1916’ I animated this film in oil paints, the work load was at least tripled because of this for the same length of film (4mins). It’s a film about an artist struggling with a mental illness. As he paints onto the canvas we see flashbacks of his childhood as he explains the differences between the then and the now. So what I am up to now is re-working and tweaking that film ready to send off to festivals. Hopefully you will screen it next year! And then I’m not sure. I just hope to always be making films.
