I don't live anywhere near L.A. or care about Carmageddon. I have my own highway bane of existence called the QEW. That said, if this was Carmageddon, I wish it could be Carmageddon every day.
Actually, this was much more labour-intensive than just shooting empty streets, because it was all shot without empty streets and edited in post. Great job!
A poignant sci-fi allegory of the Brixton race riots from England's recent history. This is based on real events. Just search "Brixton race riot" on Google to find out some of the scariness and tragedy that went on. Watching it reminded me of the Marillion lyrics, from their song "Fugazi", around that same period:
A son of a swastika of '45 parading a peroxide standard.
Graffiti conjure disciples testaments of hatred.
Aerosol wands whisper where the searchlights trim the barbed wire hedges.
This is Brixton chess.
- Fugazi, Derek Dick (Marillion)
Funny and clever wrapped up in 10 minutes. A really fun journey through movie cliches and just the right amount of twist. Give yourself a coffee break in front of Vimeo and come away smiling. Plus, it looks great in HD!
A beautifully executed animated short that will take the better part of your coffee break to get through yet is oh-so-worth it. Reminiscent of the film 9 or a Tool video on first glance, the story weaves through a philosophical narrative that is positive and uplifting. What better way to get through the work day.
