Title: Walk Tall.
Client: Film London / Eastern Edge Film Fund.
About: A short animated/ live-action documentary about 2 x former Olympic Gymnast George Weedon. The film premiered at the London BFI Film Festival and went on to win several awards. It was BAFTA long-listed, but since there is no short-doc category it couldn’t go any further in the process. I should have lied and said George made the whole lot up. Oh well.
“What a lovely piece of art – fantastic!”
– The British Gymnastics Association
“Walk Tall re-invents the public information film and improved my daily posture, through perfect
unison of character and form. As George would say, ‘Well, there we are’. Quite wonderful.”
– Danny Boyle
