Fulcrum is a non-stop-motion animation film made before your eyes.  Using robotics, intricately carved miniatures and mysteriously complex technology; we join a woman on a train journey through northern moors and towns, as she imagines a world transformed.

Alongside, an electric guitar is quietly plucked, bashed and strummed by an assemblage of spidery metal machines. 

In a second space, a small cinema has been created and we enter to see the little scenes the robotic machines are videoing projected live onto the big screen.  Here the hidden details of the diorama are revealed and an animated story unfolds - accompanied by the floating sounds of the


"Very atmospheric, sets the imagination and memories whirring."
