Charley Harry's Wondrous Nothing
by Esther May Campbell & Paul Galloway
A ‘mini movie’ by film maker Esther May Campbell. Under the stars, in amongst the sand dunes resides the ghost of Charley Harry, contemplating his freckle's relationship with the constellation above.
A melodic, evocative painting of a universe where we're all born from the stars and we shall return there too. The ghost of a small boy resides in a dilapidated caravan, forever repeating the memory of his magical trip to the seaside with his Nan and Gramps. Briefly the cycle is interrupted by two boys etching their own magical moment on to the fabric of timeThe film received support from Picture This and Aardman Animations and was co-conceived with art director Paul Galloway (Aardman) and shot at Cheltenham Studios.
