The Bigger Picture is a life size animated short, defined as: “Two brothers struggle to take care of their elderly mother”, directed, written and animated by British animator Daisy Jacobs.
Over a period of a year, Jacobs brought to life this intense story of rivalry between the brothers, and their particular way to be there for their mother. The animated short was nominated for an Oscar in 2015 for Best Animated Short, and won a BAFTA in the same year.
Big picture, big issue, big characters. The combined wall animation, arms and legs that pop out of the wall and real size props, makes for an intensive experience. The forced perspective, the transitions, the boiling up feelings make The Bigger Picture a short that you will definitely remember.
