ITHACA SHORES Haunted by an imaginary world
A musical story featuring sea monsters, robots, and a tiny controller person being pursued by mysterious horned leviathans. Through a sudden and disastrous crash into the ceiling of the sky, he emerges from his imaginary island contraption, clamoring through a shattered hole, and sees the world in a new way, void of the creatures that haunted him. Music by Jay, from the album Concentric. Animated by Patrick Smith.

Directors note: In this animation, I re-introduced an iconic character I first created for my film “Masks”, I see this little pale pulp-like character as a visceral representation of our inner fragility, innocence, and honesty that is slowly buried into our inner core as we proceed through our mature lives. ITHACA SHORES Haunted by an imaginary world.
This character is a good storytelling tool as I attempt to illustrate the visual interpretations of our learning, struggles, and suffering.. and sometimes joyful victory over personal strife and confusion. The robot, conversely, is a symbol of lifelessness, of dry utility.. a vehicle. I believe this was the first time I included any type of non-organic character. I hope you like the film. I can’t thank Jay enough for giving me the opportunity to draw this piece, guided by his emotionally charged track of music. ITHACA SHORES Haunted by an imaginary world.
