There are Monsters in the Woods (2022)

Poppy Felts


When a ruthless logging machine monster invades Fairy Lake, resident tree saplings Ivy and Ash become endangered and must decide whether to stay and fight for the forest or leave their home.

Artist Statement

As an animator I am interested in examining personal perceptions and ideological concepts, by placing storytelling at the centre of my artistic practice. Through animation I aim to explore concepts and ideas in a way that is both innovative and emotionally compelling. This year I have reflected on our relationship with the environment by exploring the effects of logging and environmental degradation in Canada using anthropomorphism. 3D animation provides an immersive medium to bring this story to life, highlighting our responsibility to protect the environment, while developing my own technical interests in world building, lighting, and compositing.
