properties | animation

For my final major project on the MA Graphic Communication course at Kingston University I produced a stop-frame animation to tell the story of my childhood. The process was a cathartic one as I wasn't always the best communicator growing up. Building the set, constructing the armature, making the props, and physically manipulating the puppet was an incredibly immersive experience in which I lost myself - the irony.

Properties has been screened at Book Club London as part of a Screen Social event, and at Flatpack Festival 2012, in Birmingham.
