'Music & Clowns' dir: Alex Widdowson

· Shiny Network Picks
This video was emotional, engaging and informative all in one. The use of animation to construct the storyline is perfect and goes hand in hand with the conversation being had which makes them compliment one another. You find yourself falling in love with Jamie by the way he is portrayed and spoken about. A great watch!
Incredibly sweet, loved the animation

I did not care for the stylistic changes in the animation. 

Director's Description of Video:

My brother, Jamie, has a profound learning disability. Despite being close to nonverbal, he demonstrates charisma, humour, and emotional sensitivity. I team up with my parents to discuss what it is like caring for someone with Down syndrome and piece together a sense of his inner life.

Director's Bio:

I graduated from the RCA Animation MA in 2018. I've been directing animated documentaries for ten years and am starting to expand my practice. I freelance as a director and animator specialising naturalistic character performance and documentary style storytelling.
