Interview, January 10th 2022
Emma de Swaef & Marc Roels directed the first chapter of the Netflix Anthology „THE HOUSE“ titled „And heard within, a lie is spun“
Marc & Emma are a filmmaking couple based in Ghent, Belgium. While Marc’s background lies in live-action, Emma loves anything to do with the handcrafted, building highly tactile and characterful puppets, miniatures and detailed sets. Their work mixes stop-motion and puppeteering artfully with live-action which creates a particular kind of absurd humour and tenderness which has earned them international critical acclaim.
The House is a 2022 British stop-motion adult animated anthology film telling three different stories surrounding the same house spanning different time periods and characters. The anthology was produced for Netflix by Nexus Studios in London with stories directed by Emma de Swaef & Marc James Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, and Paloma Baeza.
