Vampire twins, the Dancing Durgee-Du’s, lure Gladdie to a mysterious plant, which is ritualistically uprooted as a companion for the lonely Gladdie. Transformation of plant and creature unfold in this 2D/3D hand painted computer animation. The work evolved through research on myths surrounding the mandrake plant found in literature, plant mythology and science journals.
The animation was produced with a Cintiq Wacom tablet, Corel Painter, Adobe After Effects and Premiere. Music was produced by Cul de Sac, written by Glenn Jones, BMI.
