The new Short Film ‘Snooze Time‘ by English and Media Studies Tutor Matt Harris is ‘going off’ and causing a bit of a stir. The short, which can be accessed via Vimeo, has already been seen 140,000 times and received 1,920 ‘likes’.
The buzz seems to have been partly due to a short review of the the 7 minute film by Jeanette Bonds, a writer and independent animator living in Los Angeles and Co-Founder/CEO of GLAS Animation. Jeanett’s review was recently posted on the website ‘Short of the Week‘ which gave the short a 4.5/5 star rating. Snooze Time is written by Matthew (Matt) Harris and directed by Ivan Barge.
