Carried Away

Carried Away

This short animated film is an impressionistic reflection on the creative process. Using black-and-white photographs (representing reality), overlaid with animated colour drawings (representing fantasy), it illustrates the artist as he braves creative storms, indulges spontaneous bursts of inspiration and learns, by trial and error, to harness his creative powers.
