As You Command

Short Film (Full Length) – 2018

In the middle of a decidedly average day, a house painter (The End of the Golden Weather's Stephen Papps) discovers an old flask in a hole in the wall. This short film, written and directed by James Cunningham and brought to life by 28 of his students at the Media and Design School, explores the idea of wish fufilment. The painter gets a great deal on the usual three wish limit from a blue genie with a Scottish accent, and samples a list of childhood dreams, including fighting fires, racing cars and photographing dinosaurs in the wild. All offer chances to showcase some CGI magic.

This film is about my own ability to blame others for things going wrong in my life, and how hard it is to accept that the fault is usually my own.
– Writer/director James Cunningham on the inspiration for As You Command
