UPCOMING SCREENINGS – Push Festival, Spit That Out. Artist Film Programme. HOME, Manchester.
Experimental animated short film.
Spines is an exploration of doubt. Constructed as a dream, it follows a reluctant hedgehog in a quest to solve an impossible puzzle. Mixing real details of dreams with fictional scenarios the film follows a deceptively linear narrative that barely manages to contain the threats to branch out.
The film has been created using a mixture of traditional and digital techniques, combining drawings, cut-outs, stop-motion, projections.. For more info on our creative process head to our Spines blog.

“The film creates and recreates again its own narrative and visual space with inventiveness and constant surprises. Beguilingly simple in its visual design it engages the viewers with its quirky atmosphere, but also the very personal feelings of the main character, hidden under fly wings.” Anča Award 2016
