Director Biography - Jonathan Gibney
Jonathan Gibney was raised in Wilton, Connecticut. In 2017, Jonathan moved to Savannah Georgia to pursue a career in animation and film; he attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he fell in love with storytelling.
He has worked as a generalist on several other animated projects in his time at SCAD, including SCAD Animation Studios' The How Book and The Last Dungeon.
"Our interest lies in the potential of the moving image and our ambition is that the images we produce are able to inspire and evoke a strong emotion within the audience."
The Boy is a meditative film about a subject that many have tried to encapsulate in some form or another. Rather than encapsulate we’ve attempted in a sense to free it, celebrating the ineffable moments of the human experience that are often overlooked.
As a depiction of life and loss this film is:
A child forced into adulthood,
A winter cut short by the fires of man,
Culminating in a visceral human moment in finding hope in the darkest times.
You are invited to experience the beauty that circumvents tragedy.
- Director Jonathan Gibney
