Something Is Amiss In "Anorak"
Produced at the Bristol School of Animation, Anorak is a highly compressed animated mystery- following a pig slowly realizing that something is terribly amiss in his coastal town. As his neighbors slowly start to go missing, he can no longer ignore the strange screams echoing off in the distance.
Anorak is in reference to the jacket that the protagonist wears in this town, a slang word for parka. The surreal vibes of this animated short emanated ultimately reminded me of something that Dave Lynch would come up with, a la Twin Peaks.
