Film by Ryan Garry (Crime, Thriller and Short) Director A body lies in a gutter. A game of cards is played late at night. With one life already lost, the question is...who will come out on top?
The Creative Process
Film by Ryan Garry (Documentary and Short) Director The Creative Process interviews fourteen Merseyside artists - painters and photographers, sketchers and sculptors, each with their own compelling stories - and investigates the highly subjective nature of their creativity. We ask them to explore their artistic journeys - uncovering the varying and extremely personal idiosyncrasies of each individual. We will see how emotionally charged the creation of art is - that the methods and styles of each artist are linked with deeply important people in their lives, powerful moments in their memories, or an overwhelming sense of art and creation being a home for them.
