This is a touching story of a young boy’s first love. He moves to a new neighbourhood and falls in love with the much older girl next door. The story is told without the use of faces, using only body language to convey often subtle emotion. This required a shading and animation style that would communicate posture and motion very clearly. Blik is a graduation film made at the Utrecht School of the Arts, Netherlands. Directed by Bastiaan Schravendeel with Jean-Paul Tossings (Technical director), Sander Kamermans (Art director), Piebe van der Storm (Set designer) and Peter van der Velden.
