creative direction, illustration
Four short stories were selected by Story Factory from their Marvellous Birds Anthology to be transformed into illustrated and voice-acted short films. For each story I illustrated between 13-16 major frames/beats, some with small looping animations. The style we developed emulated the collage textures used in the publication illustrations, but gave them a more characterful twist to suit each story. The illustrations were then adapted by Story Factory’s editor, Marcus Khoudair, into animated videos.
