Northern Stage presents Scroll: 5 Minute Wake Up
Written & created by Leo Skilbeck

Content information: A fast moving series of videos focussing on a road trip at night with many different traffic and road lighting formations, and a gently pulsing soundtrack.

To be viewed as soon as you wake, or when you need a five minute reset.

5 Minute Wake Up is a short film designed to do just that - to wake you and ease you into the day. In this meditative film, you’ll journey from Manchester at dawn and out into the Peak District. Incremental and hypnotic, an early morning dream, this film draws on process videos, long journeys, and the gradual glow of sun up.

Created by Leo Skilbeck (previous shorts include: BIG BEN (Young Vic), Love Song For The Wild (Homotopia), Not That Kind of Film (Derby Theatre), Leo invites you to spend the first 5 minutes of your day on yourself through this film.

Music composed and produced by David Lewington
Production manager Adam Robertson

Scroll is designed as the antidote to 'doom scrolling', a series of digital story interventions commissioned by Northern Stage, replacing the moments of mindless scrolling with tiny stories about us.

Beautiful work by Leo Skilbeck - we'll be sharing this to help everyone wake in a gentle, thoughtful way with familiar images of city and countryside. 'Breathe in, breathe out, take your time' - just gorgeous. Thanks to Leo for creating and Northern Stage for commissioning and platforming.
