SYNOPSIS...

A Break in the Monotony was written a few years back, but it is something I put on the back burner until I figured out a way to visually depict it.
It is an animated short which is part zombie movie part allegory for corporate living in contemporary society.

ABOUT...

Depicted both in colour and in b&w A Break in the Monotony is produced with a combination of techniques. The look is achieved by compositing detailed pencil drawings within both 2D and 3D environments.
All aspects of the production were undertaken by Damien Slevin.
