Marcus Armitage

Director

A BAFTA-nominated filmmaker, Marcus' hand-drawn work employs bold colour and expressive motion, creating captivating visuals and thought-provoking stories. The diversity of his approaches can be seen in his commissioned work such as his animated sequences for the documentary LIMBO which premiered at SUNDANCE and in his award-winning, and BAFTA nominated short film MY DAD, which explores inherited racism using a tactile approach of oil pastels and newspaper clippings.

His latest film THAT YORKSHIRE SOUND draws upon his roots with a colourful and frenetic union of audio and image that documents a day of life in Yorkshire.
