Combining hand-drawn sketches and digital animation, "Tender Wasteland" is a portrait of the desert-like landscape of Dungeness on the Kent coast. The film moves between carefully observed snapshots of the area’s natural ecology and glimpses of its industrial past. Commissioned by FLAMIN Animations.
