Andy Howlett’s been making quirky movies with other young people here for years. Usually lampooning folk like me – tongue in cheek (I like to think!).
Now he’s taking on another unloved institution (just joking): the old Birmingham Central Library that was demolished this year. Well, Andy’s one of the Brummies who rather loved it.
He’s trying to complete a feature length film in praise of its uncompromising ‘brutalist’ architecture and querying how/why we sweep away buildings of the recent past.
Andy's been called a comic genius and certainly has a style all his own. Would you think about helping him crowdfund the rest of this project? Here's a preview to see what he's on about...
Whether you donate or not, here’s a selection of films Andy and Co created while here at Othona West Dorset - which we love. Enjoy!
