Laura Spark makes films and music videos using film and stop motion animation techniques with a mixture of collage, drawing, puppetry and models. Check out her most recent film Lepus Fagus, a sad tale of a young hares struggle to comprehend mortality. These films are made on very little budget, often using found and recycled materials. All contain an element of improvisation, and the lingering residue of long cold nights in a dark dark room.
Models, puppets and sets created for stop-motion, film and live performance.
Hand pulled screen prints. All limited runs, available for purchase. Bespoke printing service also available.
