Character Designs

The character, Ivor, appears in the film as a fragile old man but there is a moment at the beginning where we see him in a photograph as a young man with his bike which plays an important part in the film’s climax. This design looks at Ivor in both these stages – very much opposite ends of the spectrum. The fact he is more active and physically engaged as a young man further emphasizes his fragility when we meet him, he has lost touch with his bodily presence and his paranoia for his own safety is what drives the films narrative.
