When fox and rabbit say goodnight.

When fox and rabbit say goodnight. is a short film following a boy on his search for love and constancy. The film appropriates the hollow animation aesthetic of early 2000s’ video games to explore the themes of neglect and grief through the limited dialogue, body language, and the depiction of characters. Negligence during the modeling, texturing, and animation stages has become the basis for the unspoken narrative and reinforces the themes. Juxtaposition of the characters’ limited ability to express themselves with their desire to do just that, presents clearly artificial depictions of humans as closely to their real counterparts.

Director Biography - Finn Stevenhagen

I am a Netherlands-based audio visual artist and use computer generated imagery and animation to explore the limitations of human expression. I explore narratives and their meta-narratives through the form and quality of their presentation, predominantly through the medium of film.
