Elcid is a visually driven Writer and Director, who specialises in environmental, socially-conscious and thought-provoking productions. He holds an MA in Film Theory from University College London (UCL), and has worked across film, television and journalism. Elcid's background in reportage led the way towards his filmmaking début with the award-winning short documentary, 'Revolutionary Roads', which enjoyed festival successes and went on to win the Current TV Short Cuts prize. Since then, Elcid set up his independent production label Crimson Black Productions, and has gone on to write, direct, and produce a number of visually striking short films like 'PIRANHA' and 'UNSKIN', with each one successively more ambitious and a prelude to his latest film projects in development. In response to the Covid-19 lock-downs, Elcid showed great initiative in creating a global community arts video platform for creatives to share their voices with each other, called 'We Are Not Alone' (http://wearenotalonefilm.com), which is shaping up to be a historical and cultural record of the crisis.
