These films were made with yr 6 pupils at Preston Park Primary as part of the House of Illustration‘s education program. A cross-curricular learning project to support the study of genre fiction, five sessions with two different classes focussed on illustrating horror, and creating a bank of ideas (characters and locations) that could be used as inspiration for creative writing. Each pupil made one or two pages of an interactive class book entitled ‘An Encyclopaedia of Horror’ which can be seen below.

Man+Hatchet asked me to make some concept drawings to show up to 60 naked people making up images from a bird’s eye perspective. Finally the years of life drawing were going to have a direct use. As the idea for the film developed and changed to incorporate the practicalities of making it so the drawings developed so they could serve to convey ideas and be used as an actual guide on set.
These illustrations held a unique set of challenges, the most significant being scale. Once the location for filming was set (an arena in Tallinn) the minimum size of a person was determined. I ended up making a large number of drawings – at least 20, and began to see little naked people when I shut my eyes.
As the drawings were used as guides I had the chance to help make the film too – an amazing and surreal experience.
