This artwork has been taken from an upcoming animation by Duncan Rudd. The film explores the theme of vulnerability; using the sea and its unknown predators as a metaphor for the dangers faced by refugees when searching for sanctuary. The film sees a young girl on a quest to be reunited with her family and ultimately, a place of safety.
Duncan Rudd has been bribing, coercing and extorting animation from computers since screens were this shape. He has spent the last decade freelancing for studios up and down the UK including Aardman, Nexus, Studio Liddell and dozens more. Recently he decided to put together everything he has learned along with some of the best talents he has worked with to create 3DR, a full-service animation production studio based in South Manchester.
