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)
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
