Animating Artists’ Health - This Body

Date: January 2019
Tools: After Effects CC, Cinema 4D, Photoshop CC
Format: Animation
Audience: General public

”This Body” explores the concept of self-care, drawing on the personal experiences of artists in diverse fields. The animation weaves together the stories, thoughts, and feelings of a dancer, a writer, and the animator in order to simultaneously identify their common struggles with caring for the self, as well as tentatively represent what makes each feel whole.

Created with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Toronto Animated Image Society, and the Artists’ Health Alliance.
