A short film set in the claustrophobic confines of a council block lift in which the main character, Neville, goes on an emotional journey which takes him to the dark and hidden recesses of his past. Broth was the final act of creation from the Spunkflakes in an artistic collaboration with director John Hardwick.
The film was rehearsed and shot in a custom-built set over an 18 month stretch on a combination of Hi-8 and DV video and then edited on Avid with the soundtrack enhanced through midi control of incidental samples.
