Escargore

This snail horror comedy is so scary, it'll shock your shell off!

Claude and his friends are out of their element and in a whole lot of trouble when they choose the wrong lettuce for lunch. They must now find their way out of this world of horrors before they end up on the menu!

Escargore is the latest third year production from Media Design School's Bachelor of Art and Design (3D Animation and VFX). The project took around four months of intensive work to complete by a group of 22 students.

Point and Shoot

"When an attempted burglary turns into an unlikely car-jacking, two aspiring criminals learn an important lesson : only practice makes perfect."

The Present

After a very successful festival circuit, running on over 180 film festivals and winning more than 50 awards, we’ve decided that it’s finally time to share “The Present” with the rest of the world. 

“The Present” is based on a great little comic strip by the very talented Fabio Coala.

In D.R. Congo - The Story Of A Solar Fridge

In October 2015, I accompanied the humanitarian organisation Medair to eastern Congo, a region in crisis for more than two decades. Medair has been bringing relief to people suffering in some of the most remote places in DR Congo since 1997.

DR Congo is often a forgotten crisis. It doesn’t show up much in the news, but millions of people continue to be forced from their homes cut off from health care and other essentials because of ongoing waves of violence. 

Medair is going far off the beaten path to make sure vital health services are up and running in remote villages. You can learn more about what they are doing here: medair.org/extramile

The interviews in this film went through several translations. As a result, there might be some mistakes in the translation, but the main content was not altered.
