Director Biography - Andrew Abbiw

Relatively new to indie film-making, Andrew Abbiw began experimenting with animation projects back in 2005 when a game developer (Lionhead Studios) released 'The Movies', which was initially aimed at game tycoon fans however, it's secondary element of an animation film tool allowed Andrew to delve into his first steps of story telling. Several short animated films later, Andrew's passions led him to create an ambitious musical feature called 'Temporary Night' in 2009, which he regarded as his most personal project to date, until now.

Andrew's ultimate goal has always been to venture into live action productions and hopes this is just the beginning of a new chapter.
