Since graduating from Visual Communication and Media Design from Abertay in 2011, Aimie Willemse has written and directed several short films across Scotland throughout her filmmaking career. Since moving to Glasgow, Aimie has been constantly challenging herself; creating new and compelling stories that will transport her audiences to new worlds through clear vision and collaboration. Her most recent short films "The Distances Between" and "Control" are perfect examples of how she experiments in different genres; one is a dialogue heavy and character driven piece while the other focuses on combining mesmerising choreography and silent narrative together. These shorts are seemingly polar opposites from each other but both serve a purpose of telling stories from a fresh perspective which she continues to do this throughout her work.
