Illusions¸ is a film about two characters that meet because of an accident, due to which they find themselves lost, each in their own limbo.
To get out, they need to win a simple game with only one rule: the next level is just a step down.
The film is inspired by short story Goats Eyes by Max Frei.

Film is done entirely in screen-printing technique, which means that all the frames were drawn by hand, turned into colour separations and screen printed on A3 sheets of paper, then scanned back in to create an animated sequence.
More than 400 screen prints were created while making the film.
