Crying and Wanking

Great Britain 2002, 6' | Director, Screenplay, DoP, Animation, Sound, Production Alys Scott-Hawkins | Music Alexis Bennett

A drama about sex, shame and spending too much time indoors. A story of loss in which a woman, alone, chews over a recently ended relationship.

This contemporary urban tale is drawn directly into the computer with the tactile, loose quality of the drawn image expressed through a pixillated, digital line.
