A Family Portrait

A Family Portrait

A family portrait goes horribly wrong as the raw, inner lives of each family member bubble to the surface under the photographer’s relentless gaze. Using hand-drawn animation and experimental face recognition techniques several years before the "deepfake" phenomenon, director Joseph Pierce perfectly satirizes modern social conventions - revealing the bizzare reality underneath.

Winner of the Audi and Press Award at 2010 Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival. Winner of Best British Animation at 2010 Encounters International Film Festival.
