About The Tall Grass

Created by Tim Miller and David Fincher, Netflix’s Love, Death, and Robots (LDR) Vol 2 is the second series of animated shorts, showcasing the work of multiple animation studios.  Returning for the second series Axis Studios were presented with the opportunity to create the episode - The Tall Grass, under the vision of director & VES Award-winning How To Train Your Dragon franchise alum, Simon Otto.

Adapted from Joe R. Lansdale’ tense Lovecraftian horror story of the same name, The Tall Grass uses visually stunning CG to create a living, breathing illustration.

Axis Studios set out with a mission to make every frame a painting to push the capabilities of their creative team, and create something audiences have never seen before.The team at Axis relished the opportunity to utilise their skills to push the boundaries of animated storytelling outside its comfort zone.

Animation rarely delves into the horror space, and Love, Death & Robots was a chance to show the extraordinary versatility of the medium. 

Axis created a unique look that complemented the story and emphasized its themes and is engaged with many other equally exciting projects in the same space

About Bram Sels

Bram grew up on 90s comics, cartoons, and cinema. Bitten by the creative bug in primary school, he was always visualising stories, drawing his own comics and creating his own versions of Magic: The Gathering playing cards.

His lifelong passion became his craft and, in due course, he landed roles as a visual development artist for Animal Logic, ReelFX, The Neuland, Psyop and Ubisoft, an illustrator for MTG publisher Wizards of the Coast, and now, an art director for Axis Studios.

At Axis, Bram leads the aesthetic of a project from start to finish. He helps to develop its visual language and identity, guiding the design of everything from environments to characters to colourscripts. Working closely with design, assets and LRC, he aims to deliver high-quality projects that dazzle on the final screen.
