The Evil Weed takes a shine to poor Rosie, but goes too far and ends up doing some abominable things. Just abominable.
What did you hope to achieve with it?
I wanted to see what nature looks like doing things considered evil in a human context, since the weed is basically nature’s serial killer.
I had the idea and made the film that night – I finished editing the next day – the animation was pleasingly simple to make as the weed is just one single slithery limb.
What do you like about the one-minute format?
I find that if you minimise your tools and parameters, you maximise your creativity, and thinking of ideas becomes easier.
