This is an edgy animation based on interviews the artist, Julia Pott, conducted with real people about their actual experiences. As she puts it, “their animal counterparts tells their stories of humor and heartache” and, through doing so, give voice to these stories in a way profoundly different to any straight forwardly representational strategy for conveying narratives.
The artist's full description from her Youtube listing:
Using interviews with people about their first encounters with love, their animal counterparts tells their stories of humor and heartache. This was my graduation film at Kingston University.I don't know a thing about this animation apart from that. It is proof that animation does not have to involve a single princess, troll or ogre.
Animated By Julia Pott, Music, Sound Design by Christopher Frost.
