A young man's life that's controlled by a dark entity, when he finally realises what he needs to do to break free, he discovers he is not alone.  

 

"BULLDOZE"  is my first fiction short film and has spent the last year flying around the festival circuit, receiving various official selections and winning best student film at Cornwall Film Festival 2017.

"Every year the Cowall Film Festival Short Film Competition opens its doors to student entries, the winner of which is shown in our Official Selection. This year we’ve had a fantastic array of student entries from Colleges and Universities not only in the UK but from far beyond and our student winner is reassuring that the future of UK film-making is in very good hands. Cornwall Film Festival’s short film competition has always been about resisting the cliche and breaking conventions – and Bulldoze does this like no other. Written and directed by Jake Earwaker, 20 years old from Chesham in Buckinghamshire, and based on his own experiences with depression and self-loathing, Bulldoze sees a young man’s life being controlled by a dark entity, though he eventually realises what he needs to do break free – when he discovers that he is not alone. Jake’s surrealist student film evokes a powerful message and in a technical sense displays an skillful use of puppets as visual metaphors. Bulldoze is Cornwall Film Festival’s 2017 Best Student Film."

BEHIND THE SCENES 

JONATHAN LEECHES PUPPETS

Jonathan Leach is an extremely talented artist and puppeteer from south England.  Jon has been working on multiple projects recently, such as illustrating John Lewis's "Moz the Monster". As you can tell from the film, the puppets in BULLDOZE are a crucial part of the film's story and I'm ridiculously grateful to have had Jonathan on board. 

 

Below are just some of his collection of handmade puppets (so many that I couldn't fit them all in the film!)
