captive 01 by loish captive 01 by loish
An illustration from the captive project. check out a second here - [link] - and third here - [link] .

Here's what I worked on for most of October/November - animation sequences for Bearkatt Productions, who made a Channel 4 (U.K) documentary about Tanya Kach's life (warning: the documentary deals with very shocking subject matter). 14-year-old Tanya Kach was held captive by an older man, phsyically as well as emotionally, for 10 years of her life - a truly heartbreaking story. The animations were intended to illustrate her emotions when she met her captor at a young age. She rationalized the situation by believing that she was in love and had found someone to take care of her for the rest of her life, something she longed for as a result of not feeling loved or wanted anywhere else. Of course, this was far from the truth.

The animation sequences are basically romantic fairy tale scenes with a 'dark' edge, showing a princess falling in love with her prince. They were edited into the interviews that were conducted with Tanya. What you see above is some artwork which was integrated into the final sequences, to which my awesome boyfriend Arjen Klaverstijn contributed animation and effects.

Heel erg mooi, eerst lijkt het een heel romantisch plaatje, totdat je beseft dat het bos toch wel een beetje dreigend is...

Watched the program recently and knew I recognized the art style from somewhere. I just kept saying that's loish's art! lol Anyway, what was most fascinating for me was to see how the animation was so fairytale like against such a horrible story. The animations were really beautiful, though a part of me wishes that they were for a happy story.
