Dog collar

Dog-Collar Criminal

Written and Directed by Tom Austin

You know those stories you hear that are so odd, you think they must be made up…
Well let me tell you about a rather naughty vicar with a passion for sailing close to the wind.



Written by Tom Czaban and Directed by William Westaway

An alienated teenager, haunted by the sudden death of his mother, makes a pact with a mysterious stranger he met in an online chatroom. Will this help him find the peace he seeks?

Short Film Commissions 2011

Commissioned by Exeter Phoenix Digital



Written and Directed by Chris King

Midsummer’s Eve: a chance meeting between a man and a woman in the woods provokes a romantic reverie. The film is shot inside and outside an oak cabin in the Teign river valley in Dartmoor National Park, and features an improvised candlelit dance scene to the classic 1935 Tango tune of the title.


Cops and Joggers

Written and Directed by David Williams

A peaceful Cathedral city is disturbed after a series of riverside murders take place, leaving the police with nothing but a pair of golden jogging shorts to follow. This is the tale of a murderous jogger and a Detective Inspector who will stop at nothing to trip up the killer and restore the peace in his idyllic city.

Planet Elsewhere

Paul Magee

Exeter based artist Paul Magee presents Planet Elsewhere, a new work created through the 2011 Exeter Phoenix Digital Art Commission.

The ambition for this work is to make it possible for the viewer to look out into space in all directions at the same time. Other works in the exhibition also explore our relationship with the rest of the universe.

Magee’s practice is very much influenced by a passion for science, a passion as much for its flaws as its virtues. He looks upon science as a tragic hero, arguing that science is undone by the very same characteristics that elevate and define it.
