Staring Tom Lees (voice)

An animated series following 6-year old Georgiana as she embarks on another mundane adventure, encountering the daily mishaps of life in the big city. Travis Vogt of CityArts says of Georgina:

“Georgiana is an animated short film about a day in the life of an affectless little girl who wakes up, runs some errands, sits in a park for a few hours and eventually goes back to bed. If that doesn’t sound particularly unusual to you, that’s because I left out the fish criminal, the boiling scalp, the brutal car accident, the hot dog cereal and the snot. 
"It’s a four-minute long, deeply bizarre and hilarious exercise in understated absurdity.”
