Illusions from Dominica Harrison on Vimeo.
Sometimes even the tragic accidents could lead to most happy endings..
'Illusions' was completed during my final year in Edinburgh College of Arts in 2016.
Film is done entirely in screen-printing technique, which means that all the frames were drawn by hand, turned into colour separations and screen printed on A3 sheets of paper, then scanned back in to create an animated sequence. More than 400 screen prints were created while making the film.
Film is based on a story "Goats Eyes" by Max Frei.
Cast: Dominica Harrison - Director/Animator; Tom Angell - Sound Design and Music; Kenny Blyth, Amandine Vincent - Voice Overs

In this darkly poetic animation, the Polish filmmaker Piotr Dumala offers a highly personal interpretation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic novel, Crime and Punishment. “My film is like a dream,” Dumala said in 2007. “It is as if someone has read Crime and Punishment and then had a dream about it.” ... more.
