Among Us Among Us

Among Us

Among Us is a cut paper stop motion animation about Monsters. Like monsters throughout human cultures, Monsters embody my fear and anxiety around the ever-present abuse and horror in the concurrent political, environmental, and social unraveling that we are bearing witness to. Like the real-world monsters who perpetrate horror and destruction my monsters are not frightening to look at, it is their actions that make them monstrous.
