New Generation Animators

All take time – but the sense of texture and delicate beauty is glorious.  Inspiring.

I’ve seen the Daisy Jacobs film – about 2 brothers coping in different ways with their mother becoming fragile and elderly.  Here’s a little insight into it and its award-winning nature:
