Director Statement

'Rose Pandemic' was a short film shot within lockdown regulations, working with the BFI x BAFTA Crew supported film challenge under the Micro Short Films initiative. In this film I wanted to really explore what the experience of isolation was and how this strange situation could conversely bring disconnected people together.
