Films in production

Fraser currently has two ambitious projects in production.

'Bab'

A short animated film and proof-of-concept about a man called Bab, who is looking after his father's scrapyard while he is of ill health. The financial side of the business may have suffered during this period.

'Utapia'

A short concept trailer based on the award-winning film My City (which starred the voice of Hollywood actor Brian Cox). This time focussing on the young journalist who searched for a city and who now seeks the truth within it.
