Beautiful Princess (inspired by Alíz Mosonyi’s poem)

The short video is part of a project called Obvious Surprise. It comprises seven short videos produced by Leo Kuelbs. The videos use a selection of old folk tales, then subvert the canonized gender roles that for generations have been instilled and are still strongly present in children’s literature. 

This video is inspired by Alíz Mosonyi's short story-poem: Princess Beauty.

It deals with the conflict between one’s own movement and the constrains forced on them. It combines animation with physical simulations thus creating unwanted events and glitchy effects. It is a 3D animation based on my own painting.
