The Shortest Nights – ‘Watch Me Disappear’ Premiere
The Shortest Nights is an event organised by Short Sighted Cinema, which aim to shine a spotlight on the world of short film. We were over the moon to hear that they wanted to screen The Like Minded’s own short ‘Watch Me Disappear’, a black and white animation created by Tariq. Currently showing at film festivals as wide-reaching as the USA and India, this was our UK premiere. (Don’t worry, it will soon be available to view online).
We arrived in anticipation of the screening. ‘Watch Me Disappear’ was to be screened during the ‘All In A Day’s Work’ programme, a collection of short films entering on “spies, gangsters and chancers”. After getting drinks at the bar and munching down some complimentary Propercorn Popcorn we took our seats in the cinema room. Most of the films seemed to have a substantial budget behind them, and there were even some familiar faces (We noticed Russell Tovey, Don Warrington and David Schaal). It was great to see our short on the big screen, and we definitely took away key learnings from the experience, as well as ideas for future animations.Whilst taking stock at the pub on the corner, the mosaic on the wall opposite could not have been better placed: “DO WHAT YOU LOVE”.
The Shortest Nights is set to tour the UK showcasing it’s short films at pop-up events and music festivals.
