JASON McLAGAN – Director / Writer / Animator / Cinematographer / Design & Fabrication / VFX Animator


Elegy was a 20 week project that explores several mediums of animation — puppet, cymatic/sound wave, magnetic ferro-fluid, timelapse abstraction, and projector animation. The narrative is loosely inspired by the idea of a Pixel as seen from the inside at the moment it burns out. Awarded “Best Short Film” at the AM/FM Film Festival, it was also an “Official Selection” for the Slamdance, Festival de Cine de Lima, and Woods Hole International film festivals.
