The Boy with a Camera for a Face - by Spencer Brown
The Boy with a Camera for a Face is a satirical fairy tale about a boy born with a camera instead of a head. We follow him from his birth through to adulthood, and experience his inability to live a normal life, as every moment of his existence is transformed by the fact that he is recording it. Told through pictures, the story is accompanied by a witty verse narration read by Steven Berkoff. Magical, humorous, romantic and ultimately heartbreaking, The Boy with a Camera for a Face is an epic story told in fifteen minutes about the way we live today.
Berkoff’s excellent delivery of the verses, laced with a strange hybrid of humanism and yet knowing satire, perfectly complements the visuals of the film as the narrative unfolds.
Dinner and a Movie - by Ben Aston
A heartwarming dramady about love, life, and prison dating websites. Lovestruck Randy is delighted when his prison pen pal Crystal is finally released so they can meet in person, but is woefully unprepared for the hard truths she brings with her to their first date. Ben Aston made this film while a student at the London Film School, it made the official selection for the Edinburgh International Film Festival, London short film Festival, and Palm Springs International Shortfest.
Eric - by Richard Foster
The story of a young man, Eric, who travels to his childhood home to comfort his friend Jack on the days of his mother's funeral.
