HIDDEN HOMELESSNESS

Made to a brief for the charity Methodist Action North West.

Based in Preston, Lancashire, the charity provide services to people in the North West who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless - giving them opportunities to develop their full potential.

The aim of this short animation was to creatively draw attention to issue of sofa-surfing, a living situation which is often not associated with homelessness.

Inspired by imagery from furniture and home ware advertising catalogues, the film mixes the familiar and the surreal with educational statistics.
