Broken Saints


Broken Saints is an award-winning, partially animated, Flash-animated film series by Brooke Burgess, Ian Kirby, and Andrew West. First published in 2001, it is a hybrid of the comic and animation art forms that its creators refer to as a “cinematic novel.” Like a comic, characters on the most part remain in static poses and dialogue is indicated by speech balloons. However, rather than exclusively using sequential panels, animated sequences are used to switch scenes and help advance the story, while music (composed by Tobias Tinker and Quentin Grey, as well as classical pieces by Mozart and others) and sound effects are included, lending a more cinematic experience than one would ordinarily achieve with a comic strip alone.
