'STRAYS' is a bold and innovative look at the struggles of Londoners under the pressure of an economic downturn. Shot on location in London, the unique and ground-breaking "rotoscoped" aesthetic took four years to complete; the director, himself, drawing elements over the live-action footage whilst preserving the nuances of the cast's performances. Focusing on a group of friends: a banker, a minimum wage worker, a blogger, an I.T. technician, a punk poet, and a businessman, 'STRAYS' explores how a financial decline affects their lives and relationships, and considers wider social issues of isolationism, youth unemployment, housing, and gender and racial inequality. An unflinching and inventive new depiction of modern London, blurring the lines between the real world and animation, 'STRAYS' is "A living graphic novel about life".
