Short of the Week: Johnno’s Dead - Clermont-Ferrand 2017

Wednesday 1 March 2017, by Abla Kandalaft

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. Both films, voiced by Ian Hart, use a clever and beautiful mix of animation and live action, which immerse the audience in the narrator’s sorry, and at times incongruously comical, tale.

Dad’s Dead and other highly recommended shorts are available on Chris’s website.
