Manoman (Simon Cartwright | UK | 11 min.)
Glen is barely a man. In a desperate attempt to tap into his masculinity he attends a primal scream therapy session, but even surrounded by wailing men he cannot make a sound. When another member of the class pushes Glen too far he finally lets something out- a miniature version of himself which does whatever it wants, regardless of the consequences.
Simon's life-long love of animation led to him studying it at the Edinburgh College of Art before going on to write and co-direct the acclaimed stop motion short, 'The Astronomer's Sun' (2010) which went on to win 17 awards at festivals.
In 2013 Simon went to study at the National Film and Television School and it is there he began combining live-action puppetry and digital animation for his graduation film 'MANOMAN'.
