Julia Pott’s new graduation film Howard (Royal College of Art, 2010) is a touching reflection on long term relationships. Its thought provoking script is beautifully brought to life by hand drawn animation. Howard’s illustrative frames take us to sensitive, surreal landscapes with a feel similar to Kovalyov or Paarn’s films. Julia’s combination of human and animal characters is cleverly thought through and describes greatly the loneliness and heartache of their relationship. Julia has created yet another powerful and moving short. Julia’s a freelance animator and illustrator working from London and New York. Her clients include E4, Passion Pictures, Sherbet and Etsy. You can watch more of Julia’s animation work including her animated short My First Crush and an interview about Julia’s work as an animator she has done with Etsy called Animated Portraits on her YouTube channel.
