Open Studio Artist In Residence:
While here at Struts & Faucet Brandon will be working on a short animated film. Over the course of his stay he will be working within the digital environment (mainly after effects) to flesh out a character driven film that has slowly been evolving since 2011, through drawing and experimentation . Brandon has been exploring animation in it's many forms since 2004, creating works that range from character driven narratives to non-narrative abstract experimental films and the hazy world in between.
In his own words...
Not sure how to explain the film. Basically, it is a dream like, esoteric, paranormal, soul crushing, sci-fi, animation, featuring a cat named mies van der rohe and a girl named Alexis Nihon (names will likely change).
