Sketches - Film and Interactive Documentary
Sketches (2017) is an experimental film that collages oral history and archives with a fictional narrative to explore 1970s African Asian immigration to the UK. I wrote, directed and designed the film, and video company Moonfood Creative helped me bring it into fruition. I then made it interactive in a web-app.
'A British artist misses his parents’ wedding anniversary for a last-minute sketching commission in Cornwall, but memories of them affect his work along the way.'
Sketches Studio is an interactive web-app I designed and coded that allows viewers to deconstruct the film. This is done by exposing all sources (archive footage, transcripts, audio channels, etc.) underlying the film through a dynamic, interactive user interface.
