The Bigger Picture (2014) – Daisy Jacobs

Oscar nominated short film ‘The Bigger Picture’ by Daisy Jacobs tells the story of two brothers struggling with the care of their elderly mother. ‘The Bigger Picture’ has an attractive style that uses walls as the canvas of the film, it is a style that is not fearful of displaying dynamics between characters and movements that expand on the 2D visual by adding another dimension, something that is not done by many filmmakers. The textures of the film are truly raw and stunning, this film has become a classic short film that will be looked up to for many years to come as innovative and unique. Unsurprisingly, it went onto win the Best British Short Animation at the BAFTA’s and received an Oscar nomination. With this film, Jacobs has made a name for herself in the world of film, a name that we will hear more of in the years to come.
