Elliot Dear is an almost indecently talented animator, illustrator and director. His dazzling mixed media films are consistently groundbreaking, emotive and atmospheric. Elliot’s work displays a range and skillset rarely seen. Incorporating live action, stop motion and both hand drawn and 3D animation, his films feel like a throwback to the golden age of animation, whilst managing to be utterly contemporary and cutting edge.
