BA [Hons] Animation

I am a Polish background artist with an interest in design and illustration. My film Parts Lost & Found, which uses my childhood town in Poland as reference for the background design, relies heavily on the nostalgic feeling conveyed through the background art to tell its story.

Parts Lost & Found

Parts Lost & Found is an animated short focusing on the ever changing relationships between family, friends, and places. The short follows a young girl who had just moved back to her old home town in Poland and her feelings of unfamiliarity towards things that are familiar.

Setting the Scene; the power of location in establishing narrative in cinema

This thesis focuses on understanding the use of settings within film and their importance in regards to story telling, with the main focus being on Paris, Texas (1984) directed by Wim Wenders and Decision to Leave (2022) directed by Park Chan-Wook.
