Animated and documentary shorts about buildings. Especially abandoned ones.

You can't beat a bit of windswept decay and there's plenty of that in Pollphail (dir: Matt Lloyd), a snapshot of a remote Scottish village built for workers who never came. Closer to home, Take Only Photographs, Leave Nothing But Footprints (dir: Dale O'Keeffe) offers us a quick peek round the Battery Building in Selly Oak before it was demolished, while Eva Weber's Steel Homes is about the storage containers where people stash their lives away. In Synchronisation (dir: Rimas Sakalauskas) buildings from the Soviet era are released into space, and we close with two time-lapse murals shot at FAME festival in Italy last summer, one from Birmingham's Beat 13 and the other a collaboration between Blu and David Ellis.
