Geoffrey Taylor’s Breathe
Geoffrey Taylor’s film Breathe is featured in the London Short Film Festival‘s Teenage Lives screening on Sunday, January 18, 2pm at Rich Mix, Shoreditch.
The former Totnes and Dartington resident’s film Breathe was screened as part of the View From Here South Devon film festival and is part of the London Short Film Festival programme of New Shorts 12: Teenage Lives, billed as: ‘Tales from the front line of youth in the 21st century; not for the fainthearted.’
There’s a sense of theatre and dance in Geoffrey’s films, possibly born out of his early involvement in the theatre. Throughout school he quickly turned his hand to filmmaking – in his gap year he made the award winning short My Grandma. He went to university in Bristol studying film, by the end of which he wrote, directed and produced Isabella, which seemed to pick up awards wherever it went (two from Encounters 2007).

According the the Script Factory: “Recurring themes in his works are about isolation and escape. In his work he tries to create fantastical moments within simple stories by taking the audience on a journey into another world.”
In Breathe, Geoffrey creates ‘a truly magical short film Breathe in which a young boy creates his own wonderland inside the mundane and depressing world of his mother’s workplace’.
Produced at Calling The Shots under the UK Film Council’s Digital Shorts Scheme it was shot on location at Beachcroft LLP offices in Bristol and stars Indi Syson and TiÃ©rleoni Boukhedenna. The film was produced by Steve Gear and Jeremy Routledge, with Fred Reed as director of photography and music by Martin Jones.
The screening takes place at Rich Mix in ‘the buzzing heart of Shoreditch’.
Robin Wheenary’s Wwoofing was also featured during the London Short Film Festival during the Night of the Living Docs.
