FABRICATED is a stop-motion film completed in 2016 after ten years of work. I designed, built and animated the creatures as well as the strange worlds they inhabit.
The film itself is a story of decay and rebirth. Set in a time after organic life has passed from the scene, mechanical creatures form themselves from the materials and the machine aesthetic left behind. In an anonymous assembly line, a creature named Oto is constructed from steel and bone and sent off. Making his way through an old world dying and a new world struggling to be born, Oto begins to sense that he may have a part to play in the evolution of his imperfect kind.
The shots in this film are captured digitally but there are no computer-generated elements within. It is all good old-fashioned stop-motion animation.
