Victoria Derbyshire

“Zombie Government feature”. How government plans pre-referendum are now either on hold or under threat, including Heathrow, HS2, nuclear and steel. Set to spooky music, werewolf howling sound effects, lighting strikes across the screen and ‘blood’ written captions, it portrayed an immense sense of gloom, suggesting everything is doomed. The feature finished with a full screen caption: ‘The End?’ (the question mark is of course significant). This short film failed to give a balanced view or forecast about investment policies, opting instead to flash negative speculation across the screen, thus compounding a sense of fear into the audience.
