Stephen McNally
View Director

Picking up praise and awards at festivals around the world, ‘Meanwhile’ is perhaps Stephen’s most personal film to date. Completed when he was still a student at the Royal College of Art, the film uses a bold colour scheme and fragmented, multiple narratives to make some serious points about the very nature of existence. Thought provoking stuff.
