Frank's Joke

Screening: Professional Competition 2
United Kingdom 2018
Duration: 06:07
Directed by: Edward Bulmer
Screenplay: Andrew Eu
Production/School: Shereen Ali
Dialogue language: English

Animation about Frank who told a bad joke at his new place of work. Nobody laughed. Now at 3.00am he's unable to sleep as he obsesses and ruminates over this social faux-pas, leading him to ponder on the nature of memory itself. He becomes trapped in a loop, a self-imposed purgatory for what seems like an age as the clock ticks by. This comedic and surreal look at how our brains can keep us awake at night and the mercurial nature of memory mixes live-action puppetry and expressive hand drawn animation to convey both the physical world and Frank's inner thoughts.
