Shady Acres celebrates last Christmas past. The concept was inspired by Tash’s dad’s love of (or obsession with) snow globes and the story grew from there. We wanted to create something that diverted from the sickly sweet images of Christmas being force fed to people across the globe. So this animation took on a dark but fun-spirited narrative.
Tash enjoyed combining live action footage with 2D drawings and animation. It also exhibited some techniques that Tash had acquired whilst working on the Zauberföte with 1927. Once again the creative ideas and possibilities were endless, but we managed to make it and deliver it on time to all of our loved ones, and a piece of the film even found it's way into our lo-fi Christmas corner!
