DETAILS

Stutter is a collaboration with the visual motion designer Pedro Allevato. The idea behind Stutter was to capture the mental and emotional journey of growing up with a speech impediment. I began by writing a piece on my own personal experiences of this and worked with Pedro to make the script into something which would work as a narration to a visual piece. Pedro brought his unique style to the composition, marrying the script to dark and dream-like visual metaphors that blend from one scene to the next.

Oleg Shushkanov came on board and worked on creating a soundtrack that beautifully captured the anxiety and drama of the visuals and voice-over.

AWARDS

Stutter has been selected to be shown at several international film festivals. It made it's world premiere at ANIMFEST 2017 and it's UK premiere will be as part of Short-sighted Cinema's The Shortest Nights.
