Synopsis 1

Love in idleness it is a short animated film exploring the fleeting delusional loves relationship between Titania and Bottom. The film focuses on the transformation and transfiguration of the two characters in the act of a frantic lovemaking. Scratchy animated lines, morphed body parts, fragments of flesh intersect and crash together into the crude rhythmical act performed by the deluded donkey and the tricked woman. There is no story, no time and no roles: only raw emotions and sensations.
The film is made with charcoal on paper, the images are a series drawing constantly erased and retraced.
