Grigoris Leontiades "Scratch"

Scratch is an example of Trunk Animation's latest recruit to their ranks of directors. Grigoris Leontiades continues the sadistic exploitation of animals explored by his colleague in yesterday's short. Given this is a web commercial for a pet carrier, and therefore a little longer than might otherwise have been the case, I guess there had to be some bright light though not after much slashing and scatching and blood. Cats are lovely creatures but handle them with thick gloves. Or, remembering yesterday, call in a colourful bird. A 2003 graduate of London's National Film and Television School, he previously studied Art & Design at Leeds Metropolitan University. He joined Trunk in 2007. I will feature another longer and darker movie from Grigoris shortly.
