I've been fortunate to work with the film board in one capacity or another for the last 6 years. I've assisted on several films and interactive projects and have also started to develop my own projects with them.
There were parts of this film that could not be represented by live action or by any other method other than animation. There were nightmarish dreams that needed to be interpreted that dealt with many themes explored in the film. By animating them, it offered a way to tell these short stories with a real economy of time in a much-needed expressive way.
In these animated sequences, you will see people being treated like dirt, you will see life and death, blood, guts, shit, semen. Please see the movie description below.
I was tasked with building the idea of Dirt in one image. I chose a collage using stills from the film that melds elements of significant parts of the story. The end result is an ugly, temporal beast carrying the world on it's back which is symbolically resonant of the film's contents.
