A stop-motion short, inspired from my experiences of growing up with a younger brother with autism. Supported by UK Film Council, BBC Scotland, Creative Scotland and DigiCult.

Forgot is a short film about memory, emigration, longing, Jesus kitsch, cocktail sausages and children’s television. Forgot explores the shape of memory, telling the story of a life through its effacing. A non-linear narrative that flashes between childhood and maturity, as it all slips away. From what we long to remember, to what we'd sooner forget. Music composed by Adam Cullen.
