Jo Jo in the Stars
Dir Marc Craste/GB 2004/12 mins
A 12 minute story of love, self-sacrifice and jealousy played out against a black and white world that is both nightmarish and hauntingly beautiful…

Varmints
Dir Marc Craste/GB 2008/24 mins
Varmints (adapted from the award-winning book written by Helen Ward & illustrated by Marc Craste) tells the story of one small creature’s struggle to preserve a world in danger of being lost forever through recklessness and indifference…
Winner of 27 Film Festival Awards, Varmints was also BAFTA nominated and Oscar Shortlisted.

Lost and Found
Dir Philip Hunt/GB 2009/24 mins
Lost and Found is a beautiful story based on Oliver Jeffers’ award winning children’s picture book. Adapted and directed by Philip Hunt, the 24 minute film features narration by the great Jim Broadbent, and a beautiful score by composer Max Richter.

A Morning Stroll
Dir Grant Orchard/GB 2012/7 mins
Loosely inspired by a real life event recounted in Paul Auster’s brilliant book True Tales of American Life, Grant Orchard’s A Morning Stroll tells the story of one New Yorker’s early morning encounter with a chicken – an event that plays out over 100 years.
