TRAILER - Sorceress, by Patrick Jenkins is now online

Patrick Jenkins has posted the trailer for  Sorceress, his latest animation, on Vimeo.  Sorceress is filled with epic shots and follows conventional horror tropes à la hitchcock.  Patrick's use of positive/negative space in the film and the audio that accompanies it are particularly noteworthy.  To me, the film has a truly Canadian feel harkening back to the earlier auteur driven NFB films.

Sorceress is described as a mythological adventure story. Two sisters head to the big city to see a concert. When the younger sister is kidnapped, the older sister embarks on a perilous journey to rescue her sibling from a wicked Sorceress. Done using the technique of Paint on Glass Animation. Written, Directed and Animated by Patrick Jenkins.
