A little background information...

The film was made as a way to process losing my father to cancer. For a long time I felt a need to make a piece of art to try and make sense of it, trying comics and music, but struggled finish / fully realise these projects as it meant going through memories that were difficult to revisit. I decided to make this film while in my 2nd year studying animation to try force myself finally complete this project. Originally the film was going to be a set in outer space, but I realised I was putting up walls to prevent myself from really facing what the film is about, so I ended up making something much closer to reality. The film is about grief but also about how life changing events mingle in with the mundane and everyday and suddenly change the world of the individual, while everyone else is just going about their day.

How was the film made?

The film is drawn in Photoshop with some editing done in After Effects and Premier Pro.

Stop motion + wool. The only that would make me happier is if it had chickens in it. Watch this - it's gorgeous. t.co/cAWResuwys
