About Joe Hardy

Joe Hardy

Joe Hardy makes short films and music promos characterised by experiments in animation style and storytelling. He has a strong determination to remain independent, seeing the potential of modern technology and new distribution techniques to reach an audience rather than following traditional studio models. He has secured several small funding awards in the past and his work has been screened at film and arts festivals around the UK. He also had his first solo exhibition of work shown in Kyoto, Japan last year. He is currently developing a personal script for a 20 minute short film which will combine live action drama with line drawn animated sequences. His long term goal is to turn his creative passion into a lifelong career and sees this latest project as a potential catalyst for making that happen. At this point in time he needs help exploring ways to make sure this project happens and hopes to find the financial investment with which to execute his ideas to the level they deserve and in turn enable him to take a significant step-up in his filmmaking career.

At some point in time I decided that it was either cheating to use other … Continue reading
