Room To Dream.
1991, 9 mins, 16mm.


From the comfort of her home and with radio as companion, a woman's voice contemplates her sense of self and impressions formed of those around her. Animation in the room works as metaphor to states-of-mind describing flights of fancy, fear of the unknown and conflicting desires for freedom and security.

A suburban perspective - but she makes a door for herself at the end and goes out........



My first 'proper' film, made at college with zero budget but lots of time. It's where I formed my ideas of combining animation with live-action (at this stage in Bolex camera techniques) to create metaphors of impossible or surreal combinations of image.



Shown in the living-room set where it was made, Nottingham 1991.
