    Dialogue language: English

    The Fourth Trimester is a relatable film that aims to expose some of the less talked about realities of looking after a new-born baby. As well as highlighting some of the difficulties of parenthood, the film also has an uplifting tone with elements of humour. Its human process of hand crafting and moving one frame at a time is suited to a topic which demands empathy. The human hand is evident in every part of the film and the amount of care that has been taken helps to communicate the message.

    Debris is on the subject of entropy, as industrialization, population movements from rural to urban settings and associated social transformations, take place in my home town in China.

    As an unassuming man battles the multiple facets of his own personality internally, the struggle turns outward and he engages with his surroundings. With each blow, the fight blurs the lines between which version of him is dominant.

    ‘The Melancholic Wife loved to dance.....she danced to cope with the dark and troubled thoughts that lived in her mind’. Sound Holds the Distance Travelled takes us on a journey through the inner world of the Melancholic Wife as she struggles against the manifestations of her own personal darkness. A memory of sound triggers a descent into this darkness and it takes form to surround, clasp and envelope her. The Melancholic Wife must find a way through and out of the dark to ultimately find her power within it. This short film uses traditional animation techniques to try to express the beauty and flow of an individuals contest within herself. Her story is narrated in a lyrical, mythical voice, bringing poetry to what is personal. It is adapted from an original short comic story and the film attempts to convey the everyday, individual glory we carry through the unromantic walls of our real lives. While also portraying the power of self expression as a means to thrive, grow and survive.

    The film is about a high diver who is about to make a jump from a 10-meter diving platform. It isn’t as much about the jump itself but rather the character’s journey to be able to make the jump. With this film I wanted to highlight the beauty and dynamic movements within sport by animating them extensively on a piece of music I made myself.
