Director Statement

I made this little animated fable, experimenting with illustration, voice and poetry, to explore a profound dream. This dream showed me my soul was stolen by a trickster and was now languishing in a chest freezer, amongst packets of frozen bait and peas.

I was inspired into immediate action, and since then I've found my way out of the labyrinth and into the sunshine.

I'm hoping that in this short I have capture the 'charge' of the dream, so I can pay it forward to others who, like me, have lost parts of themselves, and haven't yet found the bravery to call those parts home.

I'm honouring a number of profound dreams in my 'Fable' animated series. 'Animus' is the second film.
