Brooklyn-based Daniel Savage has created this wonderfully simple short that plays with shape, movement and sound. Focused mainly around a sparse monochrome grid, Daniel’s robot-like central character navigates the space by stretching, pulling, walking through and completely manipulating the constraints of this normally immovable structure.
Shifting perspectives and changing environments move with a shift into black or white, what helps these transitions is the plinky plonky sounds of musician Ambrose Yu. The creative often crafts original music, sound effects and design for animations and here his soft, playful tones lend themselves well to the changeable nature of Daniel’s geometric film.
