Corrie Francis Parks has released her sublimely gorgeous, Kickstarter funded, sand-animation short 'A Tangled Tale' online!
Through compositing and motion design, it is the first short (to our knowledge) to experiment with the silhouette aesthetic of traditional sand-animation to include vibrant colours and slick cinematic movement. 'A Tangled Tale' seamlessly blends traditional techniques with technological innovation to achieve Corrie's strangely enjoyable and compelling signature style. You can gleam further insight into her fascinating process by watching the 'making of' video, also posted below.
"A lone fish, hooked by an angler's line, encounters another in the same dire situation. As the two fish struggle against their fate, they develop an inevitable, entangling attraction. Is it love or merely a will to survive?"
