Here’s the lineup so far!

Mindless - Dir. Katie Bonham (2016) 8 mins
Mindless tells the story of Peter, a senile middle aged man whose house is torn apart day after day. Is Peter a risk to himself or is something more sinister about to be unleashed?

Dawn of the Deaf - Dir. Rob Savage (2016), 12 mins

Still - Dir. Carl Timms (2016) 7 mins
Still is a 5min dark zombie comedy about a living statue entertainer caught up in the middle of a zombie outbreak. He finds himself frozen in fear whilst everyone around him flees or dies at the hands of the attacking horde. Left alone and surrounded on all sides by zombies, our hero has to rely on his ability to stand very, very still to work out how to survive.

‘Henry Kane’ by Merrin - Dir. Danny Naylor (2016) 7 mins

Zombie Infection - Dir. Frank Berry (2016) 2mins

Oliver: Mega Wolf - Dir. Molly Brown (2016) 8mins
Animated mockumentary about a werewolf, set in the London Borough of Croydon.

I Do Harm - Dir. Jonathan Green (2015) 15 mins
A small commune has dwindled away to a single family hanging on by a thread. When a daughter returns after many years to bring her dying father medicine she does not believe is effective; a bitter clash of ideologies ensues. This brings deeply buried history to the surface and the daughter resorts to a dangerous demonstration of the medicine's inefficiency. The repercussions are extreme - and death and fire engulfs the tiny commune.

Skin Deep - Dirs. Simon le Ruez and Maud Haya-Baviera (2016) 3:52
Taking the flamboyant character of King Ludwig II of Bavaria as its starting point, the video work Skin Deep takes the viewer on a spirited journey around the notion of artifice. Set to a carefully composed and climactic original soundtrack, portraiture, fantasy castles and surprising constructs are brought together and appropriated in order to harness both a dream like celebration of exuberant taste and a confrontation of internal desires.

Shakespeare in Shorts: The Tempest - Fettle Animation (2015) 3:10
Fettle Animation are back at Showroom Shorts to show you a new incarnation of a classic Shakespeare text: The Tempest, complete with a catchy pop track and their own special Fettle twist, for a new, young audience!

Chase Scene - Dir. Bob Jordan, (2016) 4 mins
