Showreel

Prosopagnosia

Prosopgnosia is a short animated documentary about my own experiences with face-blindness. I directed and animated the personal film with support from the Scottish Documentary Institute. Prosopagnosia premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2021.

Synopsis – Prosopagnosia is a story of identity that uses expressive animation to investigate intimacy, communication and memory.
Prosopagnosia is face-blindness and as a means of understanding this neurodiverse behaviour, the contents of a memory box are explored. Sketchbooks, photographs and diaries are intricately unraveled to tell a unique and personal story.

 What It Feels Like

What it Feels Like is a short animated documentary on voice hearing that I directed and animated. Winner of Best International Documentary at Focus on Ability Film Festival Australia, Best Short Documentary St Neots International Film Festival and Best Amateur Film Walthamstow Smartphone Film Festival.

Coming Out Autistic

Coming out Autistic is a short animated documentary that explores the experience of telling the world that you are autistic when you also identify as LGBTQ+. Queer coming out stories are well documented, but the occurrence of telling friends, family, co-workers and strangers that you are autistic is less explored. Parallels with queer experiences are investigated and a wide range of individuals are interviewed to express the array of feelings and reactions that are encountered.
