Colin Hodson is a film-maker who has mostly worked in cinema between experimental and short film genres, with occasional performance and installation works presented in the the gallery. Since 2015 he has largely concentrated on developing narrative-based short films.
"Hodson's first digital feature, Shifter (2000), described by the Vancouver International Film Festival as "a self-contained slice of in medias res existence, capturing the spaces in-between with unpolished exactitude", was wholly improvised and shot for the cost of the dv tapes. This film was hailed for presenting a fresh and disconcerting glimpse into the lives of 20-something contemporary urban New Zealanders.
