De Breuklijn

This symbolic-surrealistic short film has been inspired by the fact that nowadays parents separate more often and with less consideration. The film tells the story of a little boy who is suffering from the upcoming divorce of his parents.

 

In this short film the mix of live action and animation plays an important part. The actors were filmed in a bluescreen studio after which they were placed in an artificial world.

 

The result is a short fragmented symbolic film. Several old and new film techniques come together. From advanced computer animation to old-fashioned special makeup. In this visual way the film points out that children may suffer from the separation of their parents.
