What is the film about?

Whether cat people or dog people, we all think we have relationships with our pets. But do our pets feel the same way? Can we ever really know how our animals see us, or are our relationships with them ultimately a leap of faith? This marker-on-glass animated short uses interviews to explore the depth and limitations of human-pet relationships, and how we communicate, feel for and understand each other.

A little background information...

I started thinking about pets when my childhood cat died, and decided to interview lots of people to find their stories.

How was the film made?

This film is made by manipulating marker and paint on a back-lit glass surface.
