In the middle of her study as a costume designer, Adrianna Matwiejczuk fell in love with animated shorts and decided she wanted to explore this medium. This leads us to ‘Thicket’. Following the advice of one of her teachers and making a film about a subject close to her heart, she landed on the topic of anxiety.
With Thicket, Adrianna tries to convey the feeling of powerlessness you get when anxiety washes over you.
Hear her tell about the concept behind the film, the process of coming up with the right design choices to represent anxiety and how she hopes people will receive the film.
