CONCEPT
In this conceptual animated short, we aim to create a comedic performance where the past, present and future realities overlap and interact in an environment where time has no start or end.
A modern take on Zbigniew Rybczyński's Tango, every actor that participates in this space is trapped in an infinite loop where their actions simultaneously bare and yet bare no consequence to another. Starting with a single actor that performs the same series of mundane actions, followed by another and yet another, we start to discover the motivation of these characters and their performance do not simply coexist but are correlated in a complex chain of events. Hilarity ensues as every absurd action cumulates in an amalgamation of intricately choreographed antics.
My Role
This project began last year and I was so fortunate to get to work with such a dynamic team at CraveFx to produce this short film. I was tasked to come up with the look of the film. The character designs were done in collaboration with super talented illustrator, Lai Hui Li.
