Phantom Detectors is a mockumentary drama in the style of a ghost-hunting programme. It is set present-day in the Southern United States, and is made as if it was one episode of a series.
Ghost hunters, Evelyn and Nicky, head down to New Orleans to explore a haunted mansion. The mansion was first owned by Madam Lalaurie in the early 1800’s and was a site of brutal torture. Madam Lalaurie committed ruthless crimes against the slaves who worked around the house, until she was killed by a fire that started in the kitchen. Her body was never found and it is believed her spirit never left.
Evelyn and Nicky team up with clairvoyant, Lavender Rain, and the next-door neighbour of the mansion, Jackson Johnson, to try and unveil the secrets of the house. We follow their investigation around the house while they seek to communicate with the spirits. But when Lavender attempts a séance it doesn't go according to plan.
Will the team ever escape alive?

Earth to Eli is a psychological short film surrounding the complex and extreme emotion of grief.
After the sudden tragic suicide of his longtime best friend (Eli), Simon is plunged into an inescapable abyss of loss. This short follows him as he struggles to battle against his profound grief; encompassing him and his very surroundings, distorting the line between what is real and what is not. The narrative of this story attempts to mediate on the decision that must be faced in order to overcome feelings of loneliness and, ultimately, a similar self-destructive path. Through stylistically merging boundaries between the past and present and the introduction of an alternative abstract soundscape, earth to Eli encapsulates the severe depths of Simon’s internal conflict and the beginning of his road to acceptance.
The documentary teams went out to film real stories while exploring a refined angle and learning filming skills. The documentaries will be screened throughout the degree show!

Life Without Limbs
By Stefan Armstrong-Murphy
Information on modern prosthetic limbs is very scarce online, usually requiring an in-depth Google search and visits to multiple websites. Life Without Limbs wants to bring as much of that information together in one place, so children and teenagers do not have to waste time visiting many websites to find one piece of information. The website uses a more colourful and cartoony aesthetic to really appeal to a younger audience, taking inspiration from the various Flash games on the net. Text has also been kept to a minimum too, as it’s been proven that younger audiences can lose focus and attention very quickly when faced with text-heavy websites.
