ASFF Official Selection Experimental Trailer: On Loop by Christine Hooper

In 2014, Christine Hooper’s vividly animated short On Loop gave viewers an insight into the world of sleeplessness. Set at four in the morning, the film presents a comic portrayal of the tedious insanity of insomnia. This fascinating and engaging short captivated audiences with a unusual aesthetic, inspired by artist David Hockney’s photomontages. Hooper’s film screened in the experimental category at ASFF last November.
