Keanoshow, A Collection of Short Films by Dave McKean
In this stunning showcase of seventeen short works from designer, animator, and director Dave McKean (Mirrormask), surreal and evocative images combine with strange and original stories, to create a world of memory and dreams.
Blending live-action, drawings, collage, and computer animation--the films included in this definitive collection share sensibilities with his award-winning comics (Sandman, Cages, Mr. Punch, Signal To Noise) and children's books collaborations (The Wolves in the Walls, Coraline). From the disquieting ghost story "N[eon]" to the playful creation narrative "The Week Before", these films evoke both the earliest experiments in silent cinema, and the most contemporary of digital creations. The film "Show + Tell" traces the evolution of McKean's moving picture works, and his mall, trusted team that would progress to making feature films.
