Dani Lam

Duration: 02m 36s
Medium: Stop-Motion animation, 2D Digital animation

Bad weather causes a power outage, and a young man searches for something to keep him from total boredom.

Creating is my way of unleashing my inner child, building my playground, and welcoming people into my world without me having to say a word. My work focuses on self-exploration, and Twist is a short film about a man who uses his imagination to move past some temporary boundaries. I dislike setting limits for myself, believing that they are ultimately meant to be broken. Going beyond comes with challenges, and in this film, I chose a medium that I had never worked with before, and despite many difficulties along the way, my imagination took me further.
