STOP-MOTION SHORT FILM

DIRECTED AND ANIMATED BY JOHN EYRE & ROBIN HEAP

Trapped and alone, high up in a dilapidated office building, a small boy must escape by any means if he is to survive... The Palace is a film about loss, fear, survival and hope in a dark and foreboding world.

THE PALACE  OFFICIAL TRAILER

John Eyre & Robin Heap / Co-Writer, Director & Animators

 

John Eyre and Robin Heap have collaborated for many years. The Palace, produced entirely independently, represents their debut stop-motion animation as a duo.  The production has been a labour of love that has seen the filmmakers undertaking everything from writing, design and model-making to direction, animation and post-production, meticulously creating every detail of the final film.  With no budget, using recycled and found materials, the pair improvised and developed the world of The Palace
