Forget Me Not

Director(s): 
0:21:28
Country: 

A silent little girl is on a desperate mission, but the only person who can see her is a forlorn homeless man, as lost and invisible as she is. Armed with only her teddy bear, Isobel must do everything in her power to convince him to help her.

Starring JAMES COSMO Winner of Scottish BAFTA awards for Best Actor (Game of Thrones, Braveheart, Highlander, Trainspotting), JOHN HEFFERNAN (Official Secrets, Brexit: The Uncivil War, The Crown, Eye in the Sky) and introduces Yorkshire born RUBY ROYLE.

Rage Monster

Director(s): 
0:02:40
Country: 

A little girl struggles with her uncontrollable anger.

Rage Monster was hand drawn, painted, and animated. It was made with the generous support of Arts Nova Scotia and the Helen Hill Animation Award.

Something About The Stars

Director(s): 
0:02:57
Country: 

Something About the Stars is a short, animated, poetic documentary that depicts my memory of looking at the stars in the Cook Islands. Through silhouette stop-motion, this film explores the juxtaposition of the reality of memory versus the perception of memory. The voiceover throughout the piece shares my honest thoughts during this experience. The animation serves to imagine my emotions in the moment. The background of this film was done by backlighting a sarong that I made while in the Cook Islands.

The Rotation

Director(s): 
0:07:00
Country: 

There is a war between two tribes on claiming the sun in the sky. As a result to that war, sun annihilates and the volcano erupts. Those two tribes now are dead and a new sun is made, both by that lava. Several century will pass and the humans are still in a war to claim the sun in the sky.
