This animation is based on the poem ‘Love in the Age of the E.U” poem as a reflection of our times of increased paranoia about border protection, particularly pertinent given the behaviour of successive governments in my homeland of Australia. This interpretation is set against a backdrop of industrial change, as a Mythical Lioness of the past defends her turf aided by the technology of the present.

Animation completed under 14 days in April 2014.

This animation based is based on Rose Turtle Ertler’s song ‘Before Dark’. Inspired by  trip to the Australian outback. Feral animals journey across an inhospitable landscape in search of their dreams… but are they really cut out for this place?

The animation was completed using a combination of Photoshop and After Effects CS4. I wrote, directed, animated and edited the clip during August – October 2009.
