GlimpseBenjamin Cleary & Michael O'Connor
A panda called Herbie is holed up in his illustrator studio after a bad breakup with a talented deer called Rice. Using Herbie’s art we delve back through the memories of their relationship from the heartbreaking end to the beautiful beginning; a dreamlike voyage through his mind, his heart and his illustrations.
The animated short, directed by the Irish filmmaking duo of Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer, the upcoming Swan Song) and VR creator Michael O’Connor, stars Taron Egerton (Rocketman, Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Lucy Boynton (Sing Street, Bohemian Rhapsody) with an original score by Julianna Barwick (Healing is a Miracle, Will). GLIMPSE is a highly emotive, visual feast set in the imaginative mind of a heartbroken panda named Herbie (voiced by Taron Egerton), who has recently broken up with his deer girlfriend Rice (Lucy Boynton). Herbie is an illustrator and through his art we delve back through the memories of his relationship from the heart-breaking end to the beautiful beginning.
