What is the film about?

Trunkated is a film set in a surreal world of floating elephants and motherships. It follows the story of one such elephant that falls down onto unfamiliar land, and his journey back where he belongs.

What influenced it?

Elephants, Surreal Art, India and Thailand

A little background information...

I needed to come up with a concept for my graduate film, and decided to play on my elephant obsession. Dabbling on different elephant centric ideas, I landed on this world of floating elephants, and it was wonderful.

How was the film made?

A mixture of traditional and digital 2D animation. I used paper, photoshop, after effects, flipbook and some kiddie clay!
