Fine artist Barnaby Barford teamed up with the good folks at Nexus to direct this classic boy meets girl tale. The interesting thing about it is the unusual medium—not so much of stop motion, but using ceramic figurines. I like it when the medium relates so intimately to the story.
Barnaby has a track record of working with found, mass-produced ceramic figurines and objects and just ventured into filmmaking with this clip. Good work!
The spot was commissioned by Animate Projects, who develop initiatives that explore the relationship between art and animation. This is just a trailer, the whole thing will air on Channel 4 on the 21th of September at 11.55pm.
