VIDEO: Where is Golem going?

Our very own Steve McNicholas created this trailer for 1927’s show, Golem (★★★★★ The Times, The Telegraph, Financial Times, London Evening Standard) using artwork and animation from the show itself. As well as featuring stylized locations in Brighton and Hove, the clip also contains some blink-and-you’ll-miss-it references to well-known golems in film history.

Golem will be here from Tuesday 29th December 2015 until Saturday 16th January 2016. Find out more and book

We’d like to say thanks to 1927 for providing the artwork and animation elements from Golem.
