This is a film that started as a distraction and became a shared experience. The idea was simple, to make a short piece of animation that represented each persons experience of the lockdown. There was one rule, that each animator started their work from the last frame of the previous animator. They were given no other information than their starting frame. The results are diverse and uplifting.
