Animators often build characters and their motions at the same time, creating an equivalence between who someone is and how they move. It feels natural, but in fact it’s a technique designed to aid storytelling. It’s a fairytale of motion. That’s what this film is about.

Commissioned by Tate Exchange and animated by Ewan Jones Morris.
