Client: The American Museum in Britain
Directed by: Luke Maitland
As part of the Spirit Hawk Eye exhibition at the American Museum in Britain, three Native Americans were invited over the UK to give talks, workshops and demonstrations of traditional regalia. We were delighted to be asked to make a series of six films to record the event.
Three of the films were made in the traditional documentary style by combining interviews with animation. While the remaining three were made by recording audio from the talks and turning them into animated films. In this way we created the first ever animation of a traditional Chumash story.
