Jellyfish (1973)

Amber Films, Peter Roberts

An early Amber animation experiment manipulating still imagery: people and objects on a beach, generating a pervasive sense of unease in the context of the nuclear threat.

Continuing the approaches he had explored in A Film, it was made by Peter Roberts, who joined Amber when it had moved to Newcastle upon Tyne in 1971. The use of photography paved the way for the photo films, such as Byker, Keeping Time and The Writing in the Sand.
