Shadow Gene           

ABOUTa mark norfolk film

Shadow Gene is an award winning experimental art film shot in London which aims to explore characteristics in the human race that contradict its own survival...

Produced with a micro crew and resources the film was produced using hand-drawn animation and graphics, 35mm photographs, S8mm and 16mm film. Much of the raw film stock was discontinued and out of date including 40 year old Russian Svema
black & white S8mm with images captured on refurbished sync and non-sync cameras underlining its 'art' aesthetic.
