Introducing

Ben Owora started making films when he was twelve and his Mum (She told me to clarify that) bought him a Halinamatic Super 8 camera. Now, still something of a gate-head; he has more than a dozen cameras; 8mm, 9.5mm, 16mm and 35mm. Mostly, though, he uses Digital video, just like everyone else. 8 Super Adventures is the production company he created in 1999 and is responsible for a number of short drama and corporate movies. He's doing a lot of stop motion animation these days....

The Waxwork

The film has been selected for screening by Kino London #51 on the first night at their new venue; The Electrowerks club in Angel Islington at 8.15pm on the 13th June. Tickets are £4.00 on the door.  Don't worry, there are other films too, I'm not trying to recover the costs in one night!
