BABLEDOM - coming soon to LUX Shop

BABELDOM: a film by Paul Bush
Video, 80min, UK, 2013

'The city is already so vast and growing at such a speed that soon light itself will not escape its gravitational pull. How then can two lovers communicate, one from inside the city the other outside? This is an elegy to urban life, a portrait of a city of the future, constructed from moving images 
collected all around the world from science, technology, industry and architecture.'

Babledom on DVD will soon be available from LUX Shop. 

Paul Bush's films challenge the boundaries that separate fiction, documentary and animation. His background in Fine Art is an influence on all his work and this is reflected in its inclusion in art collections and exhibitions as well as cinema distribution and television broadcast. During the 1980's he wrote and directed several short and medium length films that were critically acclaimed but it was not until the 1990's that his films became widely distributed and he was able to concentrate all his attention on film-making. During the 90's his films were commissioned by all the major broadcasters, won numerous awards and were shown in cinemas, exhibitions and television all round the world. During this period he usually used single frame techniques often involving live action elements. In 1999 he was polled in second place in Creation's list of top directors of animation. In 1996 he set up his company Ancient Mariner Productions to produce his own films and he also directs commercials and his clients have included Panasonic and Philips. In 2003 he was awarded a Nesta fellowship to develop feature films. His first feature Babeldom was completed in 2012. Due to the lack of funding in the UK for animation or experimental films he now has to finance his films through money raised by lecturing.
