CLAYMANIA: THE FILMS OF LEE HARDCASTLE

maxresdefault

Director: Lee Hardcastle | UK | Various | 45 mins

From the gory excesses of T is for Toilet – his winning entry in the ABCs OF DEATH 26th Director competition – to his outrageous film parodies such as The Raid, The Exorcist and The Evil Dead (and of course his legendary version of John Carpenter’s The Thing starring children’s’ favourite Pingu), animator Lee Hardcastle has established himself as a unique voice in the field of animation. Since uploading his first video to YouTube in 2010, Lee’s work has attracted the attention of millions of people across the globe and with good reason. With a wonderfully anarchic, chaotic quality running through them, Lee’s films demand to be seen on the big screen, and we are happy to oblige.

We are pleased to welcome Lee Hardcastle to Celluloid Screams to present this showreel of his work (handpicked by the man himself) and to take part in a Q&A session after the screening.
