HYLOZOISTS BRAS D'OR LAKES

In 2008 I was approached by The Hylozoists to create a short film to accompany one of their songs. The beautifully haunting Bras D'or Lakes immediately conjured up some emotional imagery for me, and so, with funding from BravoFACT, I set out to create my first animated short. The result is a simple rumination on memory, hardships, and perseverance in the face of adversity. Portraying personal conflict, the spirit of courage and the natural world, Bras D'or Lakes enters the reflective mind of an elderly man and reminds us that the human journey is at times beautiful and harsh.

In conjunction with this short film, I also exhibited several paintings from the film at (now defunct) Board of Directors Gallery, which can be seen below.
