  • ABSTRACTION

    Anna McGrane 2 mins (UK, 2013)

    Abstraction, referring to the 'state of being lost in thought'. Our aim was to portray the emotion of early morning, of vulnerability and sexualisation. Everything is still during the early hours, the waking thoughts and folds of bedclothes. Certain elements of the film were created regarding the poison of innocence and the ever shortening childhood young girls now face.
  • ACID TONGUE

    Pat Pope 4 mins (UK, 2013)

    The film begins in darkness, laser’s kick in, corrupting the image of the protagonist’s form. He writhes, dancing provocatively. After which, the protagonist opens his eyes... he’s a dark vengeful Watchmenesque character with a distinctly haunting voice. His arch nemesis and spurned love interest ‘Acid Tongue’ arrives towards the end to taunt him. Let battle commence!

  • BIRDS

    SON (Katie Harrison and Charlotte Freeston) 4 mins (UK, 2013)

    Influenced by the launch of Vine and the stories surrounding the use of the platform for pornography, the app is both SON's concept and camera. Shot using a makeshift rig, collections of vines were then manipulated, repeated and layered to hint at the notion of being a bird as freeing oneself from the ideals of the 'cult' of the media.
  • CALIFORNIAN MODEM

    Joon Goh 4 mins (UK, 2013)

  • DON'T FORGET YOUR MITTENS

    Anna Maguire 3 mins (UK, 2013)

    ‘Don't forget your mittens’ is a bittersweet stop-motion animation about the trials and tribulations of growing up. A technicolor to-do list about how hard it is to remember to brush your teeth and feed your cat let alone be a good person. And sometimes these things can get on top of you - quite literally!
  • DROWN WITH ME - LOLA'S BAD

    Evangelina C 5 mins (UK, 2013)

    Filmed in various locations across Greece, "Drown With Me" is a symbolic satire on the continuing corruption of contemporary pop culture by the Devil of commerce. Evangelia C, the solo electronic-pop artist under the name Lola's Bad, explores in her self-directed DIY no budget video the widely abused clichés and generic aesthetics of pop video making in the 21st century and her creation is a lush sensory overload of "cult glamour" and mind-bending psychedelic visuals.

  • KURIOUS

    Emily Bailey 5 mins (UK, 2013)

    Abstract experimental film ruminating on the body and cosmetic enhancement. By physically manipulating film and using materials that act as extensions of the body such as hair, a synthetic consciousness has been engineered as the materials begin to take on a life of their own. The search for perfection becomes an unachievable and endless loop twinned with degradation and disintegration.
  • LADY FORTUNE

    Luna Montenegro, Gines Olivares, Adrian Fisher. 4 mins (UK, 2013)

    A lyrical essay reflecting upon the idea of chance. and transformation. From succulent gardens to beautiful pools, Serafina Steer voyages through mystical encounters where things don't seem quite as they are. This beautifully framed short film seduces and provokes an outer bodyness. A journey into an inner world, canal locks and ponds, like black mirrors into the unknown, alchemical imagery and reflective magical spaces. The voice of Serafina Steer takes us along a path of encounters, following the serpentine shape of an English canal, we discover mythical objects that spark contemporary re-enactments of 15th century illuminated manuscripts. As the wheel of fortune turns the film spins into unexpected images and emotions with the song gliding just above and below the surface.
  • LE MYSTÈRE

    Raoul Paulet 4 mins (UK, 2013)

    Through a journey of self-discovery a woman explores the meaning of life. Choices, fears, intentions, mistakes. Objects that move and change shape. A magical table that gives her shelter.

The lyrics repeat the phrase "We're standing in light" – ‘The Light’ could be real or imagined, a metaphor for enlightenment, either spiritually or intellectually.

    VV Brown, Jessica Hughes 17 mins (UK, 2013)

    Somewhere in-between a music video and a short film, Samson and Delilah is an art house interpretation of the biblical story “Samson and Delilah” that takes you on a journey exploring the relationships between power and weakness.
