✹ A boy and his mum live on an isolated farm, but one day a crow man crashes into their world. Mask characters and animation combine in this dreamy, fairytale, narrative, short. ♥︎
The goal was to create a micro-budget short, that combined live-action animation and mask acting in a novel and interesting way. I wanted the final look to resemble a Paula Rego painting or an Anna Maria Pacheco sculpture, with similar themes and styles, but in movement.
BEST ANIMATION – Wimbledon Short film festival.
RUNNER UP AWARD – Screen Stockport.
