Check out the latest developments to the film
Gracie’s version of Br. Thomas shows the flustered monk, as usual, late for work and running past one of the Church Fathers with the blue Dragonfly in hot pursuit. In the film the statues never show signs of life, only perceived judgement and long shadows. I love that in Gracie’s version, it seems that the statue and the dragonfly have an understanding about Br. Thomas.
For the fourth shot of the film (the first actual stop-motion shoot) celebrating the details in nature plays a huge part in helping to shape the world Br. Thomas lives in. Dew drops seemed the perfect element to establish scale and that early morning feel . . . which is harder than it might first appear!
