#shortitout with Åsa Lucander

Watershed Recommends: Fri 29 May - Thu 4 June

Live stream

Please note: This was streaming on Zoom in June 2020

Join us for our next Filmmaker Frontroom Q&A with director, illustrator and animator Åsa Lucander.

We'll be chatting to Åsa about her work directing short films and the recently released music video for Coldplay’s forthcoming album track, ‘Daddy’ which was produced by Aardman Animations.

Åsa has a passion for hand rendered drawings and explores many different textures and mediums in all areas of her work. Her animations are lively and playful, with humour that is sometimes dark yet offbeat and liberating. She nimbly blends music, authentic dialogue, film segments, hand drawn characters and dolls in innovative ways.

As well as working on commercials, Asa has also directed multiple shorts including her latest award-winning short film Lost Property which premiered at Ediburgh Film Festival.

This event is in partnership with Aardman Animations. #shortitout Front Room Filmmaker Q&As are supported by BAFTA and Channel 4.

#shortitout is brought to you by Encounters Film Festival, BFI NETWORK and Watershed as part of Depict 2020. Share your shorts with us on social media by 4 June using #shortitout.
