A humorous short about a man who just wants to be a horse. Most of us probably dream about being in the mountains, climbing like a god, but perhaps not all...A short piece of the absurd - don't blink!
(Strictly speaking, not a UWE film at all, as it was made by some second year students in their summer holidays for the Depict competition, part of the Bristol Brief Encounters film festival. They won the first prize of £3000. Then Steve and Alex found themselves being invited to the Colorado Film Festival, since then Cheval has toured round festivals all over the world.)

Father’s Day explores the relationship between a young boy and his two fathers: the biological dad, who barely knows how to relate with his son, and the stepdad, who at least shows some empathy and understanding.
Out of the Game captures a slice of street level realism that is typical of Conor McCormack’s work. Connor still works in Bristol and has recently had his documentary Christmas with Dad selected for the Sheffield International Documentary festival. Connor is currently developing a drama project, whilst working on several community-based documentaries working alongside young offenders involved in car crime and teenagers from the Somali community.
