Two brothers entertain themselves with a game of hide and seek. As one counts, the other hides in a small cabinet. Seconds pass… then minutes… years… and decades. Hide is a heartrending and prescient story about family and disconnect in a world that is increasingly fragmented and unrecognizable.
Daniel Gray studied Fine Art at the University of Wales, Cardiff. After a stint as a represented painter, Daniel started experimenting with animation. While studying animation at the University of Wales, Newport, he met Tom Brown. The duo started a creative partnership with their graduation short film, t.o.m. (2006). This short tale about a young boy’s rather peculiar and revealing journey to school was an instant success at international film festivals, collecting awards from Ottawa, Annecy, and Sundance, as well as at the British Animation Awards. Their next film, teeth (2015), which tells the life story of a man through the history of teeth, screened at more than 40 festivals and won numerous awards.
