Big Meaty Hands

"My Dad the Giant": Hands from Patrick Stannard on Vimeo.

"My Dad the Giant" focuses around two characters, one of them being almost literally a Giant. A major aspect of Brionelli, the dad in the film, is that he is an accomplished painter, sculptor, and craftsman. He is meant to be an intimidating presence in the film who often becomes completely engrossed in his work. As a result his hands are meaty, worn, and massive but move delicately with the precision of an artist. 

These are just a few shots demonstrating that fact. These extreme closeups communicate his size and daily rituals as he prepares for a painting.
