Papercut Dream

Lotte Dawson’s animation is a traditional craft, combined with modern day digital technology to create a fantasy dream world.  Informed and influenced by the darker fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen and of the Danish story-teller Karen Blixen, it is the story of a small boy’s dream which turns into a far more disturbing ordeal. Familiar characters appear but they are more menacing than friendly.  By using the delicate and ephemeral medium of paper I hope to reflect the shifting, intangible tensions of a nightmare, heightening the atmosphere with the addition of an original music score.
