Short of the Week: Johnno’s Dead - Clermont-Ferrand 2017
Wednesday 1 March 2017, by
We caught up with animator and filmmaker - and Clermont-Ferrand coup de coeur director - Chris Shepherd during the 2017 edition. His latest short, Johnno’s Dead, a sort of sequel to his very successful, dark and mesmerising short film Dad’s Dead, was screened as part of the Lab competition.
