A short animation film made for Open Cinema in collaboration with the students of St. Vincents Primary School. The film follows the life of father Damien, who volunteers to live on the Island of Molokai ( a leprosy colony at the time). He took care of the sick and improved the local community. The film is a mixture of live action and animation/pixilation. The Art work is created by the pupils of St. Vincents School under the supervision of me in collaboration with Dieter Deswarte. Together we led two one day workshops focused on drawing and animation. We also made a follow up documentary film, showing the growing process of the year three students.
