Sir John Lubbock's Pet Wasp
Sir John Lubbock’s true story and his scientific writings on Ants, Bees & Wasps stood out as contemporary for the co-directors, Osbert Parker & Laurue Hill who worked in collaboration on the commissioned film by animate projects and Anim18. Themes of cultural displacement, civilisations and environmental concerns were found in their interpretation of Lubbock’s story still relevant today. A diverse range of techniques from, stop-motion, 2D cut-out’s and digital animation is combined to tell a bizarre and beautiful love story with a sting in its tale.

BRAVE - engaged and empowered a group of deaf and hearing-impaired, predominantly South Asian, young people in Rochdale, UK to explore and address issues of youth isolation and loneliness specific to this community. The young people wanted to share their stories to raise deaf awareness internationally. Ashley Peggs's documentary, BRAVE received Honourable Mention at the Picture This International Disability Film Festival in Calgary, Canada. This 2018 extended animated film is an important part of that documentary.
