"sOMETHING HAPPENED TO HOLT THAT WAS UNUSUAL, AND STRANGE...
 
December 17, 1967. The year Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt disappeared into the sea at Cheviot Beach. Little did anyone know however, that Holt had actually teleported himself through time!

CREATED IN 10 DAYS FOR LIGHTS CANBERRA ACTION AS PART OF THE ENLIGHTENED FESTIVAL, A HOLT IN TIME IS A QUIRKY 2D ANIMATED ADVENTURE THROUGH CANBERRA, FOLLOWING A PRIME MINISTER WE ALL KNOW.

Artistic Inspirations

A HOLT IN TIME WAS MADE IN A DESPERATE DASH, WITH ONLY 10 DAYS TO ANIMATE FOR THE LIGHTS CANBERRA ACTION FESTIVAL, ENCORPERATING A LIST OF 10 ITEMS IN THE FILM, A MIXTURE OF PHYSICAL ITEMS AND LOCATIONS. I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT HAROLD HOLT, HIS STORY HAS ALWAYS INTERESTED ME, AND I HAD DRAWN HIM 2 DAYS BEFORE LCA ANNOUNCED THE ITEMS, SO FIGURED HECK, WHY NOT!

ARTISTICALLY, I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A BIT OF A RICK AND MORTY HAND DRAWN STYLE, BUT I PUSHED THAT FURTHER WITH THIS PROJECT, RESULTING IN SOME AMAZING DETAILS BEING ADDED INTO MY BACKGROUNDS WITH SHADING AND TEXTURING, ESPECIALLY NOTED IN THE SCENES INVOLVING DRAIN WAYS.
