After a year of worldwide screenings and festivals, Gergely Wootsch’s delightful This is Not Real, his graduating animation from the Royal College of Art, is now available to watch online in full. The story follows a small boy on his “chimerical journey” from despondent reality to something altogether brighter and dreamily disconnected, depicted with devices unique to the high quality of digital craft Gergely employs.
Aside from the narrative, which has a very well-gauged rhythm, the aesthetic tug is felt most keenly through the decidedly unstatic perspectives and use of light as a tangible part of each frames composition. At just six minutes 40 seconds, it’s a charming and enjoyable no-brainer.
