"Sonnet of Delirium" is a 4 minute animated film based on an original story by Iranian artist Majeed Beenteha. In january 2011 Majeed and Icelandic director Una Lorenzen started collaboration. Few months later the fantastic sound designer Kari Rae Seekins joined the team. The project grew bigger and more enthusiastic than we imagined. Majeed sold his camera and Una kept building the visual world that best brought this eerie tale to life, using hand drawn cut outs and frame by frame charcoal animation.
On this blogg I wanted to share some images from the film. Sometimes its a shame how much effort goes into things that only appear for a split second, or not at all. Here you can see some actual production elements, some preliminary sketches and some unused animation and some other things that happen along the production.
