Stoo’s film ‘Drum Heart’ is an exploration of the emotional state of a fragile young man – desperately clinging to his lover and using self destructive tactics in order to keep their relationship from ending.
Stoo Iresen trained in Film and Communications at Goldsmiths College. He is currently working on a set of related shorts depicting young men caught in various internal and external prisons.
He is also currently expanding upon the technique of combining live action with animation or drawn elements.
In this video film interview below, Stoo talks about issues that are relevant to queer filmmakers and how technology can support the independent LGBT or gay or queer filmmaking:
