“The short films were the winners of a national competition launched by Ctrl.Alt.Shift in 2008 which invited young filmmakers to write a treatment based around a global issue – War and Peace, Gender and Power or HIV and Stigma,” explains Ali Johnson, who set up Dorothy last year with Phil Skegg. “The winners were mentored by established UK directors including: Aoife McArdle, Chris Harding from Shynola, Kinga Burza, Paul Andrew Williams and Jim Threapleton. Actors lending their support include Julian Barrett (Mighty Boosh) and Martin Freeman (The Office). Soundtracks were recorded by Young Knives, Chipmunk, Shy Child, Metronomy and Jesca Hoop. The project builds on the success of Ctrl.Alt.Shift’s other cultural collaborations with The Baltic and Vice Magazine.”

Dorothy’s Phil Skegg worked on two of the five posters: 1000 Voices (shown above) and also War School (below)

Dorothy invited different designers to work on some of the posters. James Quail worked on Man Made, and ‘HIV: The Musical,  Craig Oldham and Jordan Stokes (from Music) worked on No Way Through. Dorothy’s Phil Skegg worked on War School and 1000 Voices.
