Created by Sarina Nihei as her first year film at the Royal College of Art in London, Trifling Habits is a rather retro feeling short about a world with a very distinct rythm of it's own. We follow a rather sullen looking man and with a green dress as he goes about his strange, repetitous routines until an unexpected change comes about. I think the most retro vibe comes about from her choice of medium for creating Trifling Habits, ink outlines with rough watercolor washes reminiscent of experimental 70's animated films. It's a highly surreal, but ultimately very engrossing short.
