Mike Please

MA work

I am a reckless man. I am a powerful being. I take the raw material of the universe and bend it to my will. I make little puppet animations. I make them to not look like the things that they actually are. I hope that an onlooker might ask themselves – what is that? I like to leave imperfections, clues in each image that tell part of the story of how the image came to be. And in understanding the process, I hope that the onlooker will appreciate and enjoy the film that little bit more.
