Short Films: “Visualise This” - 2 mins 25s

Danny Capozzi's satire on client fickleness prompted a lot of laughter when we screened it at our March 2017 CraftWorks event and the director proved as engaging as his film in the Q&A which followed.

While you wouldn't guess it from his understated demeanour, Capozzi is clearly something of a show-off. Why else would he use this film to demonstrate his masterful versatility in executing such a broad range of different animation techniques? In fairness to him, 'Visualise This' is the perfect vehicle for this exercise because the switches in style brilliantly bring the client's indecision to life.

This isn't just entertaining, it's practical. Next time some awkward mofo is giving you the run-around, send him a link to this clip and ask: "you don't want to be *that* guy, do you?"
