The Shadow Creatures

1m Animation, Experimental, Student, Short 2022

This project starts in a world where shadow creatures are in a dark land that’s never been seen before. They eat fruit from trees and are in some way cat-like, but are more similar to faceless demon creatures from another world. The main character falls asleep every night and ends up in this world where he is able to witness these creatures and, in some way, interact with them. The more sinister part to this is the fact that he’s created them, even though he is terrified when he is in this world. The film explores how our lives can manifest as creatures in our dreams, which don’t have to make sense, but are still very real and terrifying. It’s the things in the real world that have not been dealt with, that come up in dreams every night.
