A film student made 400 paintings by hand to create this award-winning animation. Wow.

“Illusions” is a film about two people that meet because of an accident. They’re both lost, each in their own limbo. To get out, they must win a simple game with only one rule: the next level is just a step down.

The film is inspired by short story “Goats Eyes” by Russian author Max Frei.

Edinburgh College of Arts filmmaker Dominica Harrison created “Illusions” using a screen-printing technique, where each frame is drawn by hand, turned into color separations and screen printed on A3 sheets of paper, and then scanned back in to create an animated sequence.

Over 400 screen prints were created while making the film.

Sometimes, tragic accidents lead to happy endings at 3:44…
