Animation: Forget Me Not

Mew Lab animation brings us this lovely short film that combines live action and animated photographs to tell the story of an old woman who remembers her imaginary childhood friends. Forget Me Not, directed by Kim Noce, features excellent use of the photo cutout technique and a wonderful soundtrack.

Animation: The Magic Fish

Shaun Clark and Kim Noce at Mew Lab made The Magic Fish for broadcast on a BBC television show for children. It’s an Italian folk tale about a couple who have very little but get some assistance from an ancient chestnut tree and a magic fish. The animation is full of mixed media painting, paper, and photographs.  My favorite part is the ocean with the little boat near the end.
