Real Artists, a dark tale set in the near future, is based on Ken Liu’s short story of the same name. Sophia just scored every animator’s dream interview at world famous Semaphore Animation Studios. But when the Creative Director, Anne Palladon, reveals that she knows about Sophia’s fan-edit of Semaphore’s hit film Mythos, Sophia sees her dreams begin to slip away.

Was it Sophia’s rebel ethos and creative instincts that landed her the invitation? Or is everything not quite as it seems at Semaphore? To maintain her artistic integrity, it’s going to take all of Sophia’s instincts and nerve.

Director Statement

What makes this project particularly unique, is how it combined the talents of professional filmmakers – the DOP, the Gaffer, etc – with a mixture of 14,15 and 16 year old students from the Citizenship Media Group (a charity in South London set up to work with aspiring young filmmakers), who acted as the First AD, Second AD, Camera Assistant and more.

The process of making this film was a real collaborative and learning experience for all involved. Funded in part by the Big Lottery Fund, the film was developed off the back of months of workshops with young people in South London as part of the Citizenship Media Group (‘CMG’), and saw many of those young people become part of the production crew.

Not only was this a great learning experience for everybody – both the professionals and the students – but I firmly believe we managed to make a really terrific film out of it too; one which I am tremendously proud of.

We hope you enjoy what we managed to make.

Rich and the crew
