Saturday Shorts: ‘Insomnia’, starring Andy Serkis


Today’s film is the 1998 short Insomnia. The film is written and directed by Andrew Gunn, and stars Steven O’Donnell, Anne Orwin, Susan Vidler, and Andy Serkis. Serkis’ career, which has spanned 25 years, began in television before moving to feature films, where he garnered acclaim for his motion-capture work as Gollum in the Lord of the Rings series. His newest feature, titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, where he reprises his motion capture role as Caesar, opens in wide release in American theatres this weekend.
