Fish Head is a hand drawn, animated short film about an insomniac who must make sense of their thoughts, bringing them further away from sleep and into a small, peculiar space between levels of consciousness. In the headspace where this film takes place, the rambling thoughts of the insomniac begin to take shape and unravel while weaving through different stages of sleep. As the insomniac falls deeper and deeper into the dream world, thoughts and visuals move together, move apart, disappear, reappear and float on. The psyche of a restless mind is slowly illustrated, bringing viewers along on a journey as they navigate through morphy shapes, a melty cat, a human bird and plenty of fish. This film takes a psychedelic look inside the messy, sleep head of its animator. So, welcome! Enjoy your visit.
