When the Day Breaks

When the Day Breaks is a beautiful, sensitively made film made by Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis at the National Film Board of Canada which recieved the Palme D'Or for short films at the Cannes Film Festival, and numerous other awards. Shot originally in digital video, it was printed out frame by frame as 4x5 inch images. Beak and snout masks helped to guide the artists as they turned the human actors into animal characters. The creators painted over the video and in the process, transformed the characters and backgrounds.
