Details

The Fallen Word is a dark sinister fairytale, shot against a background of elaborate and surreal sets and incorporates animated typographic sequences. In a land where a fanatical sect has taken power and forbidden free thinking, and renegade bands of poets are the only hope for the future, there exists a word - the Fallen Word - a word that once uttered has deadly consequences. 'Never let it be said ...'

Oliver Harrison has been creating award-wining artists' animation for the past 25 years. With his graduation film, Amore Baciami (1988), he established the groundbreaking animation technique of 'kinetic typography'. He has since employed the technique in other films including Love Is All (1999), made for the Animate scheme for Arts Council/Channel 4, and Apocalypse Rhyme (2012), produced for Animate for Channel 4's Random Acts scheme.
