Through stunning animations created with immense skill by Rebecca Hayes, Arty’s adventures are deliciously depicted, and Bubnic’s script comes alive in a way that mere description or even the acting out of would not be able to achieve.”  – Theatre People

Southbank Theatre, the Lawler
22 April – 10 May 2013

I was commissioned to produce several short animated vignettes for the Melbourne Theatre Company’s (Education) production of Beached,  by Melissa Bubnic.

Animations were projected on stage throughout the show, bringing to life the vivid imagination and internal struggles of the protagonist Arty, a morbidly obese teenager facing gastric bypass surgery.
