Bradley Manning Had Secrets

I’m going to finish a new short film this week!

Bradley Manning Had Secrets is an animated personal portrait of Bradley Manning, not as the Wikileaks “hacktivist” but as a young soldier going through a crisis-of-conscious and a crisis-of-gender-identity.

This is my first non-fiction piece – all the dialogue is taken from Bradley’s online conversations with Adrian Lamo. I’ve also taken on a new graphic style: rotoscoping live-action footage into minimalist pixel-art.

This is all made possible by Animate Projects who have commissioned the film. They’re also hosting a few Making Of Videos for it.

The film premières at the BFI on Wednesday 14th Dec. Book your tickets now!
