Directed by Roy Schweiger
Institutionalised is a 2.5 dimensional animated film made for DSQUARED2 Fall Winter 14/15 womenswear show. This remarkable collection brings a glamorous but eerie side of a women’s mental hospital which is also based on the film “Girl Interrupted”. Intitutionalised is a short film created by a series of still images. The 2.5D effect is obtained by a variety of imaging systems combined from 2D images; it manipulates human faces and bodies to look life-like through layering, shadows, perspective animations and morphing, which creates a certain fluidity and changes in depth that make us think we are looking at 2D paper cutouts moving in a 3D space.
