The Man Who Was Afraid of Falling

17 April 2013


Joseph Wallace who is a director based in Bristol in the UK has just released his BAFTA Cymru nominated animated graduation short The Man Who Was Afraid of Falling.  The hero of the story is Ivor, understandably proud of his potted plants but when one falls from its window ledge position Ivor’s unconscious fears about falling become real. 

It’s a real treat to be able to feature this short on Kuriositas as it is superbly made and very funny in a melancholy way (understandably nominated for a Welsh BAFTA as it captures the Welsh sense of humor with great accuracy!). The Man Who Was Afraid of Falling has won a number of awards, including Winner 'Best Animation', One Voice Festival 2012, 2nd Prize Royal Television Society Student Animation Award, Winner of 'Best Up-and-Coming Talent Award 2011' Canterbury Anifest and winner of 'Best Film' Newport Animation Awards 2011.
