"My Dad the Giant" focuses around two characters, one of them being almost literally a Giant. A major aspect of Brionelli, the 'Dad' in the film is that he is an accomplished painter, sculptor and craftsman. He is meant to be an intimidating presence in the film, who often becomes completely engrossed in his work. As a result his hands are meaty, worn and massive but move delicately with the precision of an artist.
These are just a few shots demonstrating that fact. These extreme closeups communicate his size and daily rituals as he prepares for a painting.
