Mr X – A Short Film by Alex Nicholson

10 Dec

Mr X by Alex NicholsonDirector Alex Nicholson shot this darkly innovative short film featuring Duncan X, a tattoo artist from South London reminiscing about his life and work. It is visually arresting thanks to MPC Advertising‘s Motion Design Studio. Duncan begins the film reflectively discussing his experiences of life, drugs and existential views on the parallels between the human condition and tattooing. As his tattoos materialise and come to life, the subject matter becomes lighter and the viewer warms to him – his tattoos become part of his story, rather than the usual vehicle for judgment. It is beautiful – watch it below.
