What is the film about?

A short film about the world we live in.

Based on an original poem by Neil Gaiman, narrated by Peter Kenny, for the Visible Poetry Project 2017

What influenced it?

Lotte Reiniger, of course, Eihmin McNamara, Matthew Stephenson, but mainly Russian Propaganda films, Paolozzi’s early work, Calder and Hockney.

A little background information...

I was asked to illustrate a poem of my own choosing by the Visible Poetry Project which would be released for National Poetry Month 2017 (April). I asked writer Neil Gaiman if he had one he thought would work well animated and then the wonderful man wrote me this one.

How was the film made?

It is a traditional cut-out animated film. Paper, some acetate, a sheet of glass all added together under a camera. The mouths were added in digitally afterward.
