So London has welcomed at last a bit of belated summer sunshine today and what better way to celebrate than with this beach-tastic animation from Joseph Mann? Sandy is a stop-frame piece which took eight months to create – “a lot of sand and hours of moulding anatomically correct private parts to create the film and its handmade set, complete with a bubble wrap sea and miniature rubber dinghy.”
I don’t want to give too much away but suffice to say it’s a love story with a difference (and some wonderful wobbly bits). Top work Joseph!
