During our discussion of animation techniques in short films, I was reminded of one of my personal favorites: a student-made and vimeo award-winning video called “Falling Tide”. At around 4 minutes long, the film centers around the adventures of a seemingly stranded little boy in an abstract world. In addition to a fantastic plot and twist, what also stood out to me when I first saw it around a year ago was the fantastic sound and music choices for the piece. The entire film is intensified by a moving symphony that makes it an otherworldly viewing experience. I highly recommend giving it a look.
