This short animated film is an impressionistic reflection on the creative process. Using black-and-white photographs (to represent reality), overlaid with animated colour drawings (to represent fantasy), it illustrates the artist as he braves creative storms, indulges spontaneous bursts of inspiration and learns, by trial and error, to harness his creative powers.

Fantasy is only the truth. 

Abbie Hoffman

Can you differentiate between real and ‘unreal’ all the time?
