What is the film about?

A falling man finds peace in his fate as a he learns to let go of emotion, sensation and his physical body. His impact on the city and people below is felt if only for a brief moment.

What influenced it?

The Falling Man, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, La Maison En Petits Cubes.

A little background information...

This is my graduation film from The Bristol School of Animation. It is a very personal film, about the struggles of life, coming to terms with our fate, and ultimately the futility of it all.

How was the film made?

The film was made in TV Paint. It was unusual in that I did not use any storyboard or animatic. Instead, I discovered the story through building and editing seemingly random scenes together. I would develop on interesting conflicts that emerged. The falling man and the busy city for example.
