Primate is one of my final university year films. Shot entirely on location in Stoke-on-Trent in 2001, the central idea of this film was to explore mans inhumanity to man.

As a species, we present ourselves as advanced, and part of a civilized society. However, often (sadly, too often) human beings act out aggression in a more primitive way that reminds us of just how aggressive and dangerous we can be. These notions are explored in a conceptual way in Primate.

Primate has won Best Short Film at the Stafford Film Festival in 2002 and was placed 2nd in the Experimental category at the Twin Rivers Film Festival.
