In the Spotlight

The words 'light pollution' conjures up images of misdirected, just hatched, Floridian turtles. However, UK migration patterns, predator vs prey relationships and animal communication systems are also disrupted.

This character-based short film I directed, designed and animated raises awareness of light pollution's effects on UK wildlife. Tasked with the issue of how to make a moth likeable, the animation aims to promote positive action through its character and visual design.

Have a look at these light drawings I created during the early stages of this project, before I developed the theatrical moth.
