Imagination – Random Acts

A FIRST ACTS short animated film for Channel 4’s Random Acts strand, Imagination was directed by Screen South’s Jemima Hughes and animated by Mock Duck’s Astrid Goldsmith.

A paper cut-out stop-motion animation where the protagonist visits an exhibition of Matisse-inspired paper cuts in her pink wheelchair and is transported from the reality of the dull grey world outside into the colourful world of her imagination.
