I made an illustration for an article about making songs for children by Mari-anne Hof. She put a few of her own composed songs in the article as an example and one of those song was about bunnies dancing in a forest.

Flow

A girl is standing atop of a cliff. She closes her eyes en lets herself fall down into the sea. She opens her eyes under water and sees all kinds of fantastic visions. A symbol of light appears at the bottom of the sea and curious, she reaches for it with her hand.
Just like the festival visitor, she goes with the flow of the film visions and becomes ‘enlightened’ by the festival.
The message that i wanted to express in the movie is that the Shorts programme visitor has to let everything go what is safe and known to fully absorb the movies. The fall is a symbol for letting go en the sea for the cinema.
For this movie, I painted the drawings with oil paint on glass. It was definitely a challenge, because every drawing needs to be wiped clean in order to paint the next. But this way of working was actually what attracted me. The rough strokes of the brush have a charm that wouldn’t be able to be accomplished by working digitally. The technique was also fitting for the visual elements of the film, because of the fluent movement of the sea and the movements of the girl, that follow a fluent line.
