  2. Uniquely Human – a short film about Autism

This animated short, made by a disabled critically acclaimed Autistic Filmmaker and Actor, is a fascinating way of looking into the world of Autism and Disability, by showing how we are described and treated by society.

The film uses Animated VFX, a Voiceover (Narrator) and a dynamic Cinematic Soundtrack which are used to create a dramatic storyline. All performers in this film are Autistic. 

*Please put on your Headphones when watching online, to listen to the DOLBY Atmos immersive mix” – For Cinema screenings, the sound is mixed in 5.1

I’m proud to announce this short film was also selected by the British Council and added to their Film archive in late 2019, for distribution.

Film Funding :

In January 2019, 104 Films (Sheffield) & Biggerhouse Film (Bristol) commissioned a short film project to explore the possibility of making a short film, to give a general audience a small window into the condition of Autism, and Neurodiversity.

This film and project had funding from ScreenSkills using National Lottery funds awarded by the British Film Institute (BFI) as part of the Future Film Skills programme.
