Two short films: Confusion of Tongues and The Nest
Em Cooper is a British director and animator specialising in combining oil-painted animation with live-action film.
Em’s interest in communicating subjective experience informs her distinctive method of filmmaking. Her technique of combining oil paint animation with live-action film is often described as evocative of inner experience, and can be used to express thought or memory sequences within a film or documentary. Em’s animated work is entirely hand painted using oil-paint on glass.
