Hi, my name is Franci

Who am I?

A decade crafting films with zest,
Quirky tales are my quest.
I write, I read, I love to play,
From concerts to crafts, I make my way.

Horror, hoops, and heartfelt scripts,
On women’s tales, my camera dips.
Smiles are the aim of every scene,
“If I can’t dance,” as Emma’s keen,
“I don’t want to be part of your revolution.”

Love Refrain

Arguably the most visually arresting animated film of the festival, “Love Refrain” is a gorgeous blend of CG animation and watercolour. It is a short that uses the animated medium to great effect as a homeless man finds a working radio in a rubbish dump. Thus begins an unusual love story between the two as the relationship goes through its many stages, from the heady heights of a new romance to a bitter break-up. It is a quirky, unexpected but delightful film that should find many fans at XpoNorth.
