Exeter animator Louis Neubert has been awarded £1,500, to help make his film The Kinks and My Dad.
The film is a ‘short chronicle of a father’s attempt to provide a stable single parent figure to his teenage son and daughter, told through their eyes’.
Louis told D+CFilm: ‘I’d like this film to reflect our shared experience as local people – to try and pick out the quirky and difficult moments that are as entertaining as anything you’ll see in the mainstream media’.
The completed film will be premiered at Animated Exeter 2010 and screened at Exeter Phoenix’s Two Short Nights 2010. Animated Exeter runs from February 11 21, and Two Short Nights will be at the end of November 2010.
Louis is a graduate of the Film and Animation degree at the former Arts Institute at Bournemouth. He studied for his Art and Design Foundation at Exeter College.
After four years of freelance commercial work in London Louis felt it was time to attempt a project where he could have more artistic licence.
