Extn.21 is a short film about one man’s desire to be heard. The film uses an innovative blend of atmospheric stop-frame animation, live action performance (a live action head on a stop-frame puppet) and digital effects to create a dark world of uncertain reality (9 mins).
The film won several awards, including a British Animation Award and a nomination for a British Independent Film Award. Broadcasts include: Channel 4 Television, Arte France/Germany, CBC Canada, Canal+ Poland and Universal Italy.
