In Search of the Sky

In Search of the Sky is a short, animated film, combining hand-painted animation with collage and digital video to create a playful collage of elements, depicting a world where the sky has been forgotten.

It was created as a final project at Edinburgh College of Art.

The majority of the animation was created by a traditional oil paint on glass technique, as seen below. Each image painted onto the glass is digitally captured with a camera, the shot often combined with collage elements such as leaves or newspaper,  then later blended with video and further stop motion footage.
