Please describe what drove your creativity:
For Circular, the drive for me was a desire to get back to basics. Animation for the sheer joy of animation - created by hand. I also wanted to be as spontaneous as possible. So, drawing inspiration from “The Cadavre Exquis” collection of surrealist works and using the schema of a circle both visually and narratively, this short is an attempt at a sort of animated sketchbook, where ideas shuffle into each other without calculation or constraint. It was a blast to make and the technique offered the perfect balance of digital and analog.
Please describe how you will use the prize if you win:
I would take off an entire month and squeeze every minute out of the day possible to create my next animated short, Lilly, inspired by the adventures of my grandmother.
