The Lost Films

My first full-time job was as a Trace & Paint Artist at Pentagon Motion Pictures in Nottingham. We made the Little Green Man for Central TV.

In The Lost Films project Ive been painting acetate cells and backgrounds as if they are artifacts from lost or abandoned films made in this obsolete medium.
