Joe Roberts

Critically acclaimed filmmaker Joe Roberts is known for his documentary-style films, which often incorporate his wry sense of humour.

Having started his career with a literal bang via some 'in-camera pyrotechnics' (he burned a hole in the roof of his house making his first short, but maintains his shoots have been fire free since '93), Roberts has continued to infuse his work with a sense of realism.

Short Films
While the world around us feels pretty sci-fi these days, directors Karl Poyzer and Joe Roberts flip the script in this amusing short film. The piece brings mundane foibles into a futuristic setting, in which a pair of airships try to settle a dispute about traffic tickets... with limited success. The voice acting is great throughout, as one ship takes an official tone while the other is a little more lackadaisical in their approach.
