Feature-length Shorts

still from Islands animation
No, it just feels like it. At over 5 minutes, "Islands" was massively time-consuming for a solo project, not least because the visuals were full-colour and intricate...lots of experiments with patterns and patchwork quilts. This, and ASGC took up most of the year. It was a more expanded narrative and seemed to be more concerned with "beauty" that most of the films. Working on the glorious technicolour of ASGC seems to have had a lasting effect...so far. This is another project which made me look carefully at how gender is represented; its obvious to me these characters are all women/ when seen in relation to the men (hint: the men have wings) but is that what an audience conditioned to default to "man" when it sees a semi-abstract figure would see??
