An accomplished short by director Ben Steer of London based Blue Zoo animation studio, whose brief was to show how projected CG animation might tell a human story.
The physical effects of negative emotions envisaged in the form of morphing, melting noodle people by visual artist Ari Weinkle, who sez of it:
It turns built up tension, stress, and anxiety into creative catharsis. Frozen figures – once paralyzed by moods – are reduced to heaps of flexible nothingness..
…not at all real places or even inspired by real places. They are emotional and psychological places. Internal landscapes, if you will. The tidal pull and power of the ocean makes sense to me in terms of expressing these things, and I think that is why some of the work has a feel of water about it. My work speaks of things that are timeless, and I think that for most of us the ocean represents something timeless.
