From Here to There

From Here to There

An abstract-extrapolated day - that takes us on a journey, typical of trips that we take as a daily routine. We take these journeys for granted, and this film explores the subconscious and visual distractions that power our imaginations, interactions and thoughts. Designed to be a whimsical and visual exploration, and as a personal reflection and a celebration - by peering into our mind’s eye. I use a wide range of hand constructed styles and techniques. This personal exploration draws you along (and down the rabbit-hole) with just a hint of underlying narrative.
