Ashley Thorpe’s BORLEY RECTORY unspools at European Fests
Glass Eye Pix is pleased to announce the completion of the
Carrion Films / Glass Eye Pix co-production BORLEY RECTORY by Ashley Thorpe, illustrator, animator and author of the Tales from Beyond the Pale
The Demon Huntsman and Dead Man’s Shoes.
BORLEY RECTORY, a Carrion Films / Glass Eye Pix production is premiering at Manchester’s ‘Grimm Up North’ festival on Sunday, October 8th before a wealth of festival appearances in Europe and the U.S.
A blend of rotoscope and digital animation techniques Borley Rectory is essentially an animated documentary, inspired by the haunting that caught the worlds imagination during the late 1920’s. Pitched as ‘an ultrasound of a haunting’ Borley Rectory will be archly old fashioned, black and white, textural and stylized, with a house very much a projection of the personalities within it – and the ghosts manifestations of what may be missing from their lives.
