Inspired by the coincidental suicides in 1890 of Elephant Man Joseph Merrick and the impressionistic painter Vincent Van Gogh, "Still I Rise" fuses two events by presenting a fantasy visualization of Merrick’s last dream in an animated impressionistic style. The entire production was animated and rendered on Windows 2000 workstations. The final renders were recorded on 35mm film.
