the film

When the world around her isn’t straight, an old lady takes matters into her own hands.

Crooked is a short film I animated while studying at the VCA in Melbourne. Most of my prior work had been digital, and I really wanted to get back to basics, animating with just pencil and paper, and concentrating primarily on storytelling.

This film was inspired by the old ladies in my neighbourhood.

Crooked is distributed through Flickerfest Distribution
