Shadow Puppet

SkyWigly Online Animation Magazine recently published a terrific interview with mixed-media artist and filmmaker Ali Aschman, a recent graduate from the Royal College of Art’s MA Animation program. Her new film brings together complex ideas of self, represented by multiple scaled puppets and the rooms they inhabit. The short film (Just over 4 minutes) combines 2D painted animation on the walls of the room with large scale puppets make for an impressive visual that portrays an intimate account of the filmmaker’s inner psyche.

To be sure, it’s not a light-hearted romp, but the story is compelling and its execution, terrific. Click here for a link to the interview, which also contains a link to the film.
