Leo Bill shares unique animation encouraging people staying at home to still get creative
INFINITY is the short animation created by Leo Bill about the scale of endless possibility our minds hold, and the freedom it can bring within the confines of a lockdown.
“Whilst in isolation, there’s a lot of joy in embracing the lo-fi DIY nature of creating, and though it’s not always my bag in terms of content, right now, it feels like positivity is the only way forward. Lucky for me, I’m isolating with a bunch of artists including an illustrator, a musician and a producer” says Bill.
Having landed on the message, Leo Bill teamed up with his fellow isolators, and in the space of an afternoon, with some felt-tip pens, a Samsung phone, Logic Pro X and a bottle of wine, the 4 of them produced this colourful, inspiring work. The illustrations drawn by Cara Theobold have an innocent simplicity and the music, originally composed by musician Jonathan Kitching, lends to it a beautifully uplifting ingredient.
This animated film is a heartfelt reminder that creativity cannot be confined. Leo Bill is an award-winning actor who has moved into film making. It was first in the theatre that he began to make his own work but he now has a number of projects in development, including a psychedelic black comedy series, a short film that will aim to shoot in the autumn, and has written and directed an ingeniously witty, cinematic promo film, starring Tobias Menzies and Kit Harington due to be released late spring, produced by Maëva Demurger through Birth.
