DIRECTOR/ANIMATOR: Graeme Maguire
The Woods is a frame by frame animation that consists of around 1500 individual drawings. It’s essentially a stream of consciousness animation, as in I didn’t know what was going to happen next – quite liberating for someone who gets bogged down in perfection!
The artist is a friend from Wales who I’ve known for years. He’s been fighting a horrific battle with cancer but has managed to write and create a great record along the way. I was inspired to collaborate and saw it as an opportunity to do something quick (in animation terms) and creative and wrap up a project while it was still fun. Plus the song is insanely catchy!
