Project Description

Ephemeral characters embark upon a journey in this new film. Commissioned to create the opening film for the Style Frames conference in NYC, the animator/director was given total creative freedom which he embraced by focusing on visuals rich with characters and landscapes. As this piece was developed for a creative conference, he cleverly plays with the symbolism of all types of people coming together to watch, learn and listen. The film unfolds as a mysterious and intriguing vignette from a larger quest, rising to an epic conclusion with a surprisingly light-hearted twist. By simply placing a light emphasis on narrative, the animator/director creates a space to facilitate interplay between the character driven and atmospheric elements throughout the film.
