If diversity in animation is what you're looking for then DRAWTASTICON on Saturday is the place to be! Here are 3 more images from films to hopefully get you curious... 'SWARM', 'MOR' and 'SISTERS'.
The film: A village is overwhelmed by an unwelcome harvest.
The filmmaker: Sarah Sun is a filmmaker from Canada. She loves creating designs that engage people and spark their curiosity. She received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design where she concentrated in animation.
The film: A girl and her younger brother are lost deep in the dark woods and afraid to move forward. When they stumble across the Well for Lost Souls, she is presented with a magical solution that promises to help them find their way home.
The filmmaker: A Bowen Welles and Lisa Wu are a filmmaking team that graduated from Chapman University in Orange County, California. Originally from Lake Bluff, Illinois, Bowen emphasized in art direction and has a particular passion for the video game industry. Lisa grew up in California and has always had a huge love for all forms of storytelling. She is an aspiring storyboard artist, and eventually hopes continue to tell unique, cultural stories that challenge convention.
The film: Part exercise of passion, and part love letter, ‘Sisters’ is a fragment of some lost, tragic opera. Trapped in the ruins of their former glory, a pair of performers bound together and abandoned by time rise up to sing once more. Conjured up by the song to which it’s set, the film represents a sincere vision of inspiration derived from the music of Karin Dreijer Andersson (Fever Ray). It is the confluence of a variety of abstract concepts, from the fragility of modern technology, to the cruelty of the passage of time. The movement of the characters references legendary contemporary choreographer, Martha Graham; transposing an exercise in human restraint and lamentation onto mechanical beings.
The filmmaker: Taylor Shortall.
