“Spark, a master of stop motion, creates film of cinematic quality and of the highest standard” – Soul Noir Festival
Laura Spark came to animation from a background in performance, bringing strong theatrical elements to her work. Drawing on themes from folk, horror and psychedelia, Laura’s perverse insights into contemporary anxieties are haunting and visceral.
Years of dank basements, DIY Culture, disused buildings, urban hinterlands and brooding forests culminate in fragmentary worlds in which tales of subtle horror may (or may not) unfold.
Currently emerging from a 2 year Masters in Animation at the Royal College of Art.
Laura has also worked across theatre and TV in production and management roles as well as performance and directing.
(I also play trumpet and moonlight in a number of wild, highly performative bands, but that’s another story)
