Everything I Can See From Here
Directed by Sam Taylor and Bjorn Aschim, Everything I Can See From Here is one of the best shorts I've seen this year so far. In the dystopian short, a game of football goes awry when two friends get the attention of an unwanted visitor, and things go downhill from there.
Aside from the beautiful art direction, excellent animation, and spot on pacing I really, really loved the choice of the unorthodox aspect ratio to complement the narrative, which focuses on verticality. The short was created using a mixture of 3D and 2D animation for the environments and characters, giving the alien visitor a truly otherworldly look. Check out the making of the short at The Line studios after the break.
