Inspired by the Technicolor utopias of children's television, Over The Rainbow (2012) invites the viewer into a shape-shifting world inhabited by cuddly monsters, faceless clones and gruesome pop divas. Shot entirely using green-screen the film presents a synthetic environment, part toy model, part computer generated landscape, which explores a dark, comedic parody of the fairytale, video game and horror movie genres.
Over The Rainbow will be a 40-minute digital video and is currently a work in progress. It was shot and produced in 2011 during a 6-month Creative Scotland funded residency at 'The Banff Centre' in Canada.
