Justine Puren – sand animations





Justine Puren is a freelance animator. These pieces were done as backdrop projections for the theatre production “Winnie – The Opera” which portrays the life of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. They are back-lit sand animations so are drawn in sand and make use of morphing and wiping for transitions, but both are one take. Janine says,”No digital manipulation took place – it’s totally old school traditional sand animation.”
