This is the trailer for my graduation film from Edinburgh College of Art 2018, nominated for a BAFTA Scotland Award and currently in festivals.

Also featured in The Graduate Magazine, check it out here.

Short Changed is a stop-motion animated short about a world where everyone is literally made of money. On the surface it tells the story of a couple that want a baby, but deeper down it comments on capitalism, corruption, poverty and parenthood. 

The film was made entirely in camera, with minimal post production just for rig removal and one set extension. The coins were made by laser-cutting greyboard, which were then spray-painted and “rub n buffed.”
