This work does not originate with me. I was hired to manage, animate, and color on this project.
A film by Kate Owens and Neeta Madahar
Producer: Jacqui Davie
Animation Director: Christoph Steger
Using cultural references in British folklore to ‘the black dog’ as a symbol of melancholy or death, this animation investigates the idea that the dark element of one’s personality isn’t necessarily something that needs to be eradicated using drugs or therapies.
Hand-drawn animation, pencil, paper, markers.
