The Full Story

Daisy Jacobs (GB)


Toby is selling his childhood home, but the empty house is full of memories. Fleeting happiness, a world shattered by divorce, and all the rage and helplessness of being a child. Can he piece together the full story before closing the door on a life?

The Full Story builds on the techniques of The Bigger Picture, in that it is animated life-size with 2D painted characters that interact with 3D arms in half-painted, half-real sets. In addition, this time, painted characters in the immediate foreground come out of the wall completely, and we go into pixilation (real people moved frame-by-frame). The moving in and out of the wall is very fluid, as is the transition from painted characters to real people. The sets are highly patterned in a Seventies style, drawing heavily on the Impressionist painters' technique of over-patterning images, which also helps to blend real people into the sets. This time I wanted to explore themes of family breakdown: why people leave each other and how this affects the children. I am currently working on my first feature in which I continue to explore relationships, focusing on the idea of what values we should admire in others.
