Brighton Based Carousel showed a screening of Oska Bright On the Road at DaDa Fest 2008, as part of their touring film festival.

I came to Liverpool with a camera swapped the day before for my Brighton prints on Gumtree. I was determined to try a video response to the festival, not easy when you don’t like the sound of your own voice in recordings.

I was so inspired by the good writing and animation - and the great filming in the Oska Bright Films shown at the Festival that I was inspired to try and persevere and see what came out of it. After the screening, one of the filmmakers in the clip (See You Tube taster below) is giving an audience member every encouragement to make her own film. That enthusiasm is fantastic and worked on me.

There are some delicious slices of animations here just to wet your appetite. Inspirational films by inspired people.
