About and Synopsis

This is the graduation film of Eirik Gronmo Bjornsen and Anna Mantzaris. We made the film during our last year at the Animation Department at Volda University College in Norway.
The film is a Stop Motion short, a bit dark and mysterious but also with humor and heart.

Synopsis: A man with social anxiety gets followed by a naive and clumsy creature. Terrified the man tries to escape, unaware that the creature is actually a helper with slightly unconventional methods...

Technique: This film is made in Stop Motion. That means that we take a picture of the puppet, then we move it a tiny tiny bit, take a new picture, and continue. For every 25 pictures we have one second of animation.Since we like the handmade feel in Stop Motion, we tried to maintain that while we challenged ourselves on the technical level by using ball and socket armatures and face replacements on the puppet. The face replacements gives us a small library of expressions and gives a big variety of expressions on the puppet.

The film is at the moment being screened at festivals around the world.
