"Very impressive piece. To be completely honest I have never seen anything quite like this. Combination of comix and animation makes “A Space Tale” truly noteworthy and interesting piece of work."
- Petr Kocourek [AninetFest]


A Space Tale

A Space Tale is an animated graphic novel that merges the dynamics of comic books with the magic of animation. It follows the journey of a spaceman trying desperately to escape from a barren alien planet while being chased by a dreadful creature that will stop at nothing to find him. Ultimately, it is a story about the consequences of our decisions - with laser guns!

The project was developed as a final graduation piece for the MA Animation at UAL: London College of Communication, in late 2016.
