Ro-Bert (The Autonomous Automaton)

This is a short film that I wrote and directed in the second year of my Film & Video Degree. Although it’s only two minutes long, it sees the emergence of many of my recurring themes. It’s a coming of age drama about a disaffected young man, who learns the importance of non-conformism and expressing your individuality, and gains liberation from his unfulfilling life through art. I also use the profession of ‘street performer’ to symbolise artistic freedom. These are all ideas I would revisit and re-conceptualize in later work.
