WATCH: Unhappy Happy by Peter Millard

// Featured


Do not adjust your set.

One of the most bizarre and oddly enchanting films to have hit the festival circuit in the past year or so has been released online. Peter Millard’s Unhappy Happy follows on from his previous works like Boogodobiegodongo and Fruit Fruit and takes the audience on another colour fuelled jolt of madness. To the uninitiated a film such as this could frustrate, but the director has an amazing ability to hold the audience in the palm of his hand as he teases them with the musical help of Beethoven and Elgar.


Millard pushes the limits of abstract animation in a direction that is full of colour and humour, something which shorts of this nature have rarely been able to accomplish. Find out more about the work of Peter Millard over on his website.
