Tim Webb, UK, 2000, Beta, 12’30’’
“A body in a garden doesn’t do much for the house princes.“ About love, infidelity, lies, and a crime of passion. The story is a web of deceit, double meaning, double talk and rejection which results in a fatal outcome. 12.5 minute animated narrative, retelling the same story from 6 different points of view. The sympathy of the audience changes with each characters rendition. The idea emerged from a creative writing class that concentrated on different methods of storytelling. Webb used a real event as the starting point for his plot.
