What is the film about?

When an artist leaves his work unattended two old enemies engage in a battle to the death. When the cat’s away, the mice will play…

What influenced it?

Eleanor took influence from classic animations like Tom and Jerry and wanted to give it an interesting twist by making it cut out and stop motion.

A little background information...

Eleanor grew up in a small village near Reading, Berkshire. She can’t remember a time that she didn’t love drawing, in fact the earliest memory se has is having a fistful of crayons just scribbling on the bathroom wall at home. Eleanor doodled in all of her schoolbooks and after finishing her A-Levels she had absolutely no idea what she wanted to do with her life – only that she wanted to draw. She enrolled at UCA Farnham to get a foundation degree in art; this is where Eleanor became enthralled with animation. She then went on to study for a degree in animation at Southampton Solent University where she graduated with first class honours. This was the film she made to achieve such a high grade.
