Nicolas: The Big Issue

 
 

Made by Jade Evans and Catherine Prowse.

Winner of a Creative Conscience Award 2017.

A stop motion animation telling the story of a Big Issue seller named Nicolas Lacatus made almost entirely out of the magazines he sells. We wanted to draw a parallel between the material the Big Issue is made of and  Nicolas's precarious situation. We crumpled, tore and ripped the paper at key emotional moments to emphasise the fragility of Nicolas's lifeline.

 
 Our animation was featured in The Big Issue magazine in February 2017.
