Test for a short animated film, on domestic violence.Read More
'Dog' is the first of a series of short observational films on the theme of animals impersonating other animals . After completing Dog, I soon realised the potential in developing other scenarios with other creatures. What interests me is the effect of the viewer watching a familiar looking animal while simultaneously thinking of another.
'Copycats' consists of 10 films featuring different animals. I am seeking funding for this project and hope to complete sometime in 2018. © Daniel Greaves.
This is the Christmas edit.
I was approached by Interfilm in Berlin who requested permission for 'Big Bag' to be screened with a live band performing a sound track of their own to an audience of 800. Klangschneider is a sound collective that uses instruments and diverse technical equipments to produce sounds and music. Here is the result. The beginning is missing, but you get the idea..
Three short films using existing time-lapse and slo-mo footage overlaid with rough animated stick figures. These tests are demonstrations to prove the concept of tiny figures that secretly inhabit the world of plants and vegetation, seemingly controlling the cycle of life. Ultimately, these characters will be coloured and composited with the live-action footage.
