Joseph Pierce “The Pub”

In The Pub, Joseph Pierce uses his surreal magnifying glass to shine a light on the murky slipstream of a North London pub. Similar to his previously highlighted films, A Family Portrait and Stand Up, Pierce uses a combo of shot footage and animation to illuminate and accentuate the emotional states of the pub patrons.

Fun shots of the pub in progress are available on flickR and a great interview with Joseph Pierce is available at Directors Notes.
