Andrew Thomas Huang joins Object & Animal
Following his recent collaboration with FKA twigs on the video for Cellophane, and also the premiere of his new short film Kiss of the Rabbit God at TriBeCa Festival 2019, Andrew Thomas Huang has signed to Object & Animal in Europe.
With a background in animation, live action and visual effects, Andrew Thomas Huang’s work bridges the gap between video art and film, expanding beyond into alternative modes of storytelling. Huang has worked extensively with Icelandic artist Bjork - he served as creative director for Bjork’s VR exhibition Bjork Digital, creating multiple immersive experiences within the pioneering traveling installation.
Having also collaborated with the likes of Thom Yorke, director Joe Wright and now FKA twigs, Huang's work has straddled the line between commercial and art, his film and video work exhibiting at The Museum of Modern Art, NYC; MoMA PS1; The Barbican Centre, London; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Huang is also a Cinereach Fellow, a recent fellow in Film Independent’s Directors Lab, and a recipient of the K Period Media Fellowship grant.
"Andy is a true polymath director, excelling at any field he turns his attention to," says Morgan Clement, co-MD of Object & Animal in London. "His recent narrative work is going from strength to strength without losing any of the magic from his animation, illustration and visual effects routes. Andrew creates culturally resonant films which defy genre and category."
Following the premiere of Kiss Of The Rabbit God at TriBeCa in early May, O&A will host a screening in the coming weeks. Dom Thomas, co-MD of Object & Animal, adds: “Andy's ability to work across a vast range of media makes him the perfect fit for Object & Animal and the work we will continue to make together."
