I'm very pleased to be able to announce that 'Hart's Desire' has been nominated for the BAFTA Scotland award 2013 for animation! It's difficult to believe that my "little film" (as my granny calls it!) has been deemed worthy.
I'm very excited to be able to announce my involvement in the Sensoria festival which takes place from 26th to 29th of September at various venues across Sheffield.
Specifically, I have created the animation for The Boy Who Turned Yellow, a cautionary tale that forms part of the Now Will You Listen shows.
Here's the blurb about Now Will You Listen...
Musician/writer Mick Somerset Ward and Dean and Jarrod of I Monster have worked to create an illustrated audio visual book of short horror stories and surreal poetry. Narrated by prominent names from music and film and soundtracked by a variety of accompaniments from electronics to woodwind, they beckon the listener to follow them into the Gothic and the absurd. Guest narrators on the day include Michael Fielding (The Mighty Boosh), actress Julie Stewart (Coronation Street, It’s a Free World) and Gavin Friday.
This live performance takes place in the intimate, atmospheric setting of the Lantern Theatre. The setting echoes the old BBC story-telling series Jackanory or rather, a Jackanory broadcast from a parallel planet where things aren’t always quite what they seem.
There will be live music, featuring renowned drummer and percussionist Charlie Collins, and live narration, plus animation and visuals creatively directed by Playdead.tv accompanying the tracks.

On the 13th September my graduation film, Hart's Desire, will be shown in Glasgow as part of the world's biggest pop up film festival, Future Shorts. It's going to be taking place at CCA Glasgow and I'll be in attendance for a Q&A.
Looking forward to seeing some great films!
Hart's Desire, my graduation film from ECA has just enjoyed it's World Premier at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
I was very pleased to have my film selected and it was nice that it has premiered in the very city that it was created.
It was screened as part of the Mclaren Award programme and was shown alongside some fantastic and stunning animated shorts.
Well done to Mikey Please for winning the Mclaren Award with his film, the stunning Marilyn Myller.
