Virus is an animated film expressing my thoughts and experiences while suffering from an unknown illness, a virus in my bloodstream that cannot be detected, even with modern medical techniques, causing bewildering, extreme and often painful symptoms permanently altering my way of life.
There are scenes within Virus when you might imagine nothing is happening shadows and figures do move. The stillness reflects months laying in bed, watching shadows move and spiders build a web.
Virus with time is being edited, while trying to create a soundtrack using software Photoshop, Maya and Final Cut Pro.Virus so far is 14' 20" in length, interestingly new ideas are still being animated in Maya or is this the beginning of another animated story ....will this illness ever end......!
