‘Hout’ tells the story of a retired woodcrafter living his remaining days in a snow coated forest, fulfilling his passion: constructing wooden animals.
This film was our exploration of the boundary between the biographical documentary and the animated short. The film made during our second year at the Utrecht University of the Arts and took about five months to complete.
