Patrick Boivin is a filmmaker from Montreal specialising in stop-motion short films. He is often involved in many, if not all, facets of his productions – writing, directing, lighting, editing, animation, special effects and music. After starting out drawing comic books, Boivin ‘quickly discovered that is was faster to tell a story with a video’. He lists Tom Waits, Roy Andersson, Paul Thomas Anderson and Federico Fellini as his main influences. To date, Boivin’s YouTube channel has attracted over 170 million views. Here’s his latest short film, entitled Dragon Baby.
