‘Still Life’ Trailer

To promote the Still Life tour, we were asked to create an animated trailer that gives a taste of the emotion and suspense of the production, without giving too much away. The brief itself was relatively open, with the overall goal being to instil tension in the viewer as opposed to presenting any particular message.

Armed with actual memento mori photographs and a piece of music from the production itself we set to work.

The result is a haunting diorama capturing the essence of the show, taking you on a journey through an old and dusty hallway filled with framed photographs while a voiceover recites from ‘A dream within a dream’ by Edgar Allan Poe.
