In 2015 Creative England and the BFI Net.Work selected Vanishing Trick for their iShorts2 scheme, supporting up-and-coming filmmakers with much-needed funding. From hundreds of entries only eighteen filmmaking teams were selected for a funding award and development.
Co-written by Kristina Heaney and director Robin Schmidt, Vanishing Trick follows a young boy suffocated by circumstance. Set against the backdrop of Liverpool's gang culture, a gifted street magician believes he can cure his grandfather's cancer by making the tumour disappear.
