Soft Toffee

Soft Toffee is an experimental documentary short film I made with Anita Norfolk, an MA Film student at Edinburgh College of Art who used to work for Rockstar Games. We both directed, shot and edited the film for an experimental project we were assigned to do. We worked in collaboration with Nick Humphrey, a sound designer from Edinburgh University and a composer also from Edinburgh Uni, Callum Barton.

READ – Andrew Robertson’s review on EyeforFilm

“If your memories change – does your past change? The reliability of memory is questioned in this short film about a woman trying to remember a past love.”
