Confusion Through Sand

This film was entirely hand-animated on recycled paper.

Confusion Through Sand is tense and at times borders on horrific.

However, it does not glorify war and it does not make it feel manly or like a video game.
The film represents the deep confusion of young men in very difficult circumstances, on both sides of the hostility. We follow a young soldier, but there is no hero.

The Concept of Originality

This is a short piece that explores the concept of originality.

The topic is full of wonder, conflict, excitement, and subjectivity. For many, originality means drawing inspiration from a variety of sources to create a new idea. The script for “Original” is meant to be an adaptation of this belief; proving that unique ideas can be inspired by existing concepts, objects and experiences.

Direction/Design/Animation: Andrew Vucko • Sound Design & Music: CypherAudio.

Forgot by Stephen McNally

Forgot is a short film about memory, emigration, longing, Jesus kitsch, cocktail sausages and children’s television.

Forgot explores the shape of memory, telling the story of a life through its effacing. A non-linear narrative that flashes between childhood and maturity, as it all slips away. From what we long to remember, to what we’d sooner forget.

Directed by Stephen McNally • Music composed by Adam Cullen.
