This Series of Grimm Tales adapted by Anthony Horowitz invited animators to illustrate a tale in animation to compliment Rik Mayall’s narration. I elected to use multiplane cut out animation .
I was invited by dir. Mike Smith to design and direct this sequence for the film 1001 Nights. The film is based on the work of Japanese artist Amano . I elected to use a multiplane cut out interpretation of the work. The multiplane levels reached 12 foot tall in some scenes So I spent many hours animating whist climbing a ladder to reach all levels.
1001 Nights a 20 minute film was produced by Hyperion Studios in LA and screened with live performance by the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra music composed by David Newman.
The film was nominated fo a BAFTA in 1999.
