Creativity never stops: Short films and stories from lockdown

Featured work • Written by Ellie Cameron-Krepp, Community Manager

As the Coronavirus pandemic took hold,  physical distancing and stay at home measures became the new normal. Despite the challenges of life under lockdown, we were blown away to see creators adapting to new ways of working, producing content from home and documenting the world around them.

To showcase and celebrate the never-ending creativity of our community, we asked Genero creators to share their stories of creativity during COVID-19. The result is an amazing collection of animation, live action and stock footage short films, each with their own unique perspective on events and experience of this year.
