Doctor Who - The Runaway

The Doctor stands in the TARDIS, smiling.

Doctor Who - The Runaway (2019), directed by Mathias Chelebourg.

You’ve been in a collision. You wake inside the Tardis. The Doctor introduces you to the person, or thing, you collided with. He’s a strange and magnificent ball of living energy called Volta.

Doozy

An animated character holding a drink sits in a real hotel room using an animated telephone.

Doozy (2018), directed by Richard Squires.

Where does the character end and the actor begin? This debut feature, from UK artist-filmmaker Richard Squires, is a creative documentary that employs ‘Clovis’, an animated antihero (voiced by ‘Kids in the Hall’s’ Mark McKinney) as a means to explore the particular 'voice' casting of cartoon villains in the late 1960s. Through the lens of one of Hollywood’s hidden queer histories, this documentary offers a contemplation on the psycho-social relationship between villainy and hysterical male laughter; the use of voice as a signifier of ‘otherness’ and the frequently uneasy symbiosis of character and actor.

Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

Shaun the Sheep stands holding a glittering slice of pizza in front of a full moon.

Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (2019), directed by Will Becher and Richard Phelan.

When an alien with amazing powers crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun the Sheep goes on a mission to shepherd the intergalactic visitor home before a sinister organisation can capture her. Shaun, the world’s favourite sheep, returns to the big screen in the sequel to his hugely successful and highly acclaimed Oscar-nominated 2015 cinematic debut Shaun the Sheep Movie.
