FEMPOP is a two-state animation, paying homage to female icons and concepts that move beyond the traditional media role of ‘damsel in distress’.

Modernised pop art meets comic book animation in a collage of strong female characters sourced from a variety of fictional worlds. The main state highlights some of fiction’s best developed, three-dimensional, female characters.

The ambient state of the animation focuses on the faces of women of different ethnicities and ages over backgrounds symbolising disciplines traditionally dominated by men, which are now benefiting from the monumental input of women.
