French illustrator Thomas Danthony’s is known for creating beautifully crafted digital images that have led to commissions for The New York Times, Google and Penguin books. Earlier this year Thomas decided to relocate from London and set up his studio in Barcelona. As part of Handsome Frank's ongoing 'a little film about' series we decided to follow him to his new home city with a camera crew.
Shot in September 2017 the film looks closely at Thomas' conceptual process and approach to his art. We also get a glimpse into his world beyond the screen and look at how his love of the outdoors inspires his art and motivated his move.
A story about the fire at the heart of suffering.
Bringing together dancers, musicians, visual artists and 3d animators, the film takes a critical look at current events. A mysterious figure travels aboard his boat through a dark and desolate landscape in his quest for inner peace.
