Planet Ten & Eleven by Andy Martin

“Who’s the biggest fool, the fool or the followers of the fool? The residents of Planet Eleven face this question while running.”

“While reminiscing about times long gone, one of the former residents of Planet Ten has a plan to get back to those heady days. But will his hubris be his undoing?”

This is the tenth & eleventh animation from the ongoing illustration project ‘Illustrated Aliens‘. A new alien illustration is uploaded every day, building up to a monthly illustration of their planet. This planet was created during October & November 2013 by Andy Martin.

Dry Grass In A Blue Vase // M Is For Mactation

Though the film has synopsis, consider it as a visual poem. Like a photograph – moment in time, without ending or beginning, a glimpse of episode of someone’s life. A fading dream.

The story follows an old lady whose husband was a member of a secret guild, the sacred worship.

For centuries it guarded the closed Door in a silent, isolated house at the end of the world. The Door was sealed so long ago, that no one can remember what was hidden behind it.
After the unexpected death of her husband, she was the last who knows about the secret, that had been kept for centuries.

Written, directed, animated, sound edited by Maria Ivanova.

Mactation – The act of killing a victim for sacrifice.
