Everywhere you go you are always being watched, even in the comfort and intimacy of your own home. You don’t know who exactly is watching. The whole world maybe? Some higher being? You can’t escape the watchful eye of nature. Are your eyes even your own?

Director Bio:

Mackenzie Walla is an animator, digital illustrator, filmmaker and visual effects artist. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Her work takes everyday moments in human life and twists them into new perspectives and layers for her viewers to interpret and enjoy. Walla’s style typically involves saturated colored line work to compliment dark simplistic backgrounds. Her inspirations come from personal feelings and experiences and other art forms that deal with post-apocalyptic-like societies.

Director Statement

Walla's most recent piece, All Eyes On, is a 2D animation environment that brings forth the idea of some greater, unknown entity is always watching people partake in society, even in the private and intimate moments of their own home. These “entities” could be some unseen god, someone you walk past down the street, or even you, as the viewer.
