We Have Always Lived in the Castle
For the project, I created an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle (1962), into a short poetic animation. The project followed the characteristics of Gothic literature as well as the style of Gothic artists through its pastiche.
Narrated by the main character of the story, Merricat, with the aim to capture the emotionally intense and mysterious events of the story. My hope was to stay faithful to Shirley Jackson’s intentions with her novel.
