With his father living out the last few weeks of his life, a stoic young man is forced through a torturous month of guilt and empathy.


Crafted as a personal, hand-drawn animation, 'Heavy Summer' explores the age-old themes of life, love, and death.

'Heavy Summer' is entirely autobiographical, and contains hand-drawn reproductions of actual photographs from the time period. It was written, storyboarded, illustrated, animated, and produced by one man, the son himself.

This video is dedicated to William J Herbert.
