Crossing the Line—by Marshall Fels Elliott

This is a short animation made by Marshall Fels Elliott. If you would like to see the full version of this animation, please go: http://marshallart.ca/  and see http://marshallart.ca/movies/Earlier%20Work/index.html

Marshall’s bio:

I have completed a Media Arts Degree with a Major in Animation at Emily Carr University (2008). I am an animator and designer currently living in Vancouver. My animated/video works are strongly influenced by the mundane and everyday, as that is where I find humour. Some of my favourite animations include: Guard Dog, Ren and Stimpy, Earthworm Jim, South Park, and Sisyphus.


I enjoy this animation very much. From my culture, we do not hang clothes like this. I cannot really imagine how it works. However, this very humorous animation not only makes me smile, but also makes me sort understand how this kind of hanging clothes works.

Thanks Marshall give me the right to introduce his art in our website.

I appreciate the simplicity or line and shapes used to tell the story- also the elongated figures that repeat the simple linear pattern of clothes line, building, etc. It reminds me of something my daughter tells me about great storytelling - "leave spaces in the story for the reader's imagination to fill"Well done.

Marshall's recent work is more advanced. However, this animation really caught my attention. If you enjoy this one, maybe you will also like: www.inaea.org/post.aspx or www.inaea.org/post.aspx, the most simple element, but may create the most incredible imagination.
