Boxheads: a classic boy meets girl story. Ben – a lonely weedy character- is ignored by co-workers and friends, but then he meets love interest – Phoebe.
The concept behind Boxheads, written and directed by Will Nicholls, is simple: a world where everyone has a box for a head. The characters are only capable of showing simple emotions with faces that are drawn on and remain static. The reason for this is to communicate a story using restricted facial expression in an artistic and creative way. In the Boxheads universe everything has a box for a head – humans, animals, toys, pictures and drawings; all Art Directed by Georgia Shelton.
