Off Beat

We love Aardman Animations. It’s as simple as that. Not only are they supremely talented individuals who have inherited a gratuitous amount of artistic skill, they’re also really, really nice people.

One of those nice people is Will Becher, whose delightful short animation¬†‘Off Beat’ asks a simple question – what happens when all the policemen go on holiday?

‘Off Beat’ was commissioned as part of South West Screen’s Digital Shorts programme, a project which allowed a selection of South West film-makers to realise their dream and make a short film with support and funding.

Screened at: Aeon Festival, August 2010; Ramsgate Summer Squall, August 2011
