Short films that were a commitment to stop motion animation, at a time when more studios are focused on computer animation. My approach involves merging animation and manufacture, creating each character and element by hand. Then through the use of technological advances like 3D printers to bring the scenes to life more convincingly.
George and the Dragon once again celebrates the art of Stop Motion Animation and its endearing effect on the observer. The ability to create character’s and performance through otherwise static objects, adds to the charm of the medium. George and the Dragon is more or less another character study about two very different yet intriguing character’s who soon realise, in the case of George, that appearances can often be misleading.
George and the Dragon
A short Stop-Motion animation film depicting an Australian fable, the Bunyip as he explores the surface world.
I was inspired to create this piece of animation for a number of reasons, firstly the unique and beautiful qualities that are evident within stop motion. Secondly my continual fascination with all things mysterious and cryptid, notably lake monsters and lakes in general.
