About The Project

The short tale of a capricious heroine and curiosity that can’t quite be killed.

The piece was a highly successful collaboration with actor, performer and circus choreographer Bex Carney. Stylistically the film is a blend of old & new. I took a formal approach to telling the story, in keeping with an old silent film, but with arguably many more jump cuts, close ups & reverse angles than any silent film would actually have had.
