still / picture for Queer Heroes


A celebration of queer figures in both historical and contemporary times who have helped push forward arts, politics or science.
A collaboration between 14 animators, the structure is based on the old Surrealist drawing game Exquisite Corpses.
Each animator was given a hero to animate, passing on their last frame to the next animator to form their first frame and so on.
