Inside

Joel Somerfield

MA work

I'm a filmmaker and graphic designer.

Whilst I work in all forms of moving image, my most recent projects have been documentary. In Gadabout Nowhere I set out to pursue an entirely harebrained scheme with scientific rigour. Its factual side is tempered by the fantastical and nonsensical tangents I was drawn to along the way.
