Cally Trench's films are very short (micro or super short) animation films. Most have drawings or linocut prints as their starting point, while some use sequences of photographs. Cally's recent films have natural or mechanical sound that Cally creates herself using vocalisations, clapping, toys, and musical instruments. A few earlier films are silent, and eleven other films have music composed specially by Josh Hagley. Cally is constantly amazed and delighted by the simple fact that if images fly past our eyes fast enough we perceive movement.
Cally's films have been screened at film festivals and screenings in the UK - in Birkenhead, Birmingham, Farnham, Huddersfield, Hull, Lewes, London, Oxford, Reading, Sheerness, Sheffield, Stockton, Sunderland, Walthamstow, Washington (Tyne & Wear), and Wolverhampton. Her films have also screened in Australia, Canada, Finland, and the USA (in Buffalo, Chicago, Newark, New York City, San Francisco, and West Newton), and in online festivals. The films have also been shown at exhibitions.
