Animation


Anomalies

Hand-drawn animation with pencil on paper and collage


For me, the magic of animation is in its ability to give life: it can turn a simple structure of lines into a moving, living, thinking being.

My graduation film is about the unknown. It is about how people react when they are confronted with things that they do not understand, and it is a cautionary tale about the human compulsion to meddle, probe and fiddle with things that are better left alone.
