SHORT ANIMATION

in production

© deFilm  2021


A short black and white historical fantasy that shows the power of immersive storytelling, and how it is not always to the benefit of the audience. An allegory about our addiction to screens and validation through entertainment. Primal Hunt is a tale that transforms a spectacular campfire story into an ambush and illustrates how narratives, even since ancient times, have been used more as a distraction, rather than guidance, and the dangers of fiction becoming reality.
