Welsh short film to premiere at Edinburgh

Winding Snake Productions are delighted to announce the world premiere of Creepy Pasta Salad at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 29th.

Three years in the making, the dark comic short written and directed by Lauren Orme, with support from a brilliant team of animators based in Wales, was funded by Ffilm Cymru Wales and BFI NETWORK Wales’ Beacons scheme.

With an all-star cast including comedy actors Adam Buxton and Ruth Madoc, as well as Welsh acting titans Eve Myles and Richard Harrington, the film follows three characters; Elin works in a call centre and is anxious about her health. Trefor might be dead and is worried about the gas bill and Cari is a lonely goth girl, preparing for the apocalypse. Oh, and it’s Halloween, fancy dress is compulsory.

The film’s producer Amy Morris (pictured, left) will be taking part in a panel discussion for Animated Women UK Scotland at this year’s film festival “This project has been a real labour of love for Lauren, and our superb technical director Dani Abram, it goes without saying really, but everyone involved has worked tirelessly over the last three years.

We are so excited to have finished it, and thrilled that it’s been selected as part of this year’s McLaren programme at Edinburgh International Film Festival. I really love this film. It’s funny, it’s Welsh, it’s written by a woman and it’s beautiful.”
