The Underground Film Studio is the home of projects by artists Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais.


The experimental feature films of Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais draw upon mythology, mysticism and the history of painting and cinema to create personal and poetic explorations into the nature of moving images. Concerned primarily with an investigation into the imagination and inner worlds, their visionary films are rich immersive experiences created with a strong sense of craft.


As well as the influence of dreams and visions, their unique cinematic universe grows from an investigation into the possibilities of film narrative and a desire to expand cinema as an art form. Their work is created from a belief that cinema is still young and that there are many dimensions to this medium that are yet to be explored.


Between them they have made eight feature length films and several short films. They also create installations and expanded cinema performances, programme screenings and publish Film Panic Magazine.
