Julia Pott: The Event

To our delight Julia Pott's latest animated short, 'The Event', premiered last night on Channel 4's 'Random Acts'.

Julia's illustrative style of hand drawn pencil animation motion tracked to live action footage, which gives the film a really textural aesthetic we're used to seeing in her work, combined with the masked off geometric screen shapes all adds to the stories surreal disorientation. The narrative is an apocalyptic love story with amputated limbs based on a Tom Chivers poem.

As with 'Belly', previously posted on the Animated Review, 'The Event' has blown us away and set the bar for subsequent animation on ‘Random Act's’ unbelievably high.
