Marabou Stork Nightmares

October 2011 – July 2012

Set, Puppet and Costume Design.

My final year project at Wimbledon College of Art-  I created a concept for a film based on the Irvine Welsh novel, Marabou Stork Nightmares. The film is set entirely with the mind and memories of Roy Strang who is trapped in a coma. The Marabou Stork is a particularly important memory for Roy and central to story. I created a puppet of the bird from found objects as it is a scavenger that lives on a rubbish heap.
