Surreal elements, dystopian ideas, and bold imagery.
This film kicks off and doesn’t stop. It’s a flowing journey through a brief history of technology today – both the good and the bad.
Brains are wired and monitored, backgrounds whirr and switch around phone-transfixed teens. Constantly shifting scenarios enchant and draw us in.
We wanted to create high contrast animated drawings that are immediately engaging, then use strong, graphic transitions for visual flow.
The reMarkable ‘Get your brain back’ story is the cautionary tale that we all need to hear right now. The story has its roots in classic dystopian sci-fi tales where colossal man-made machines rise to dominate humankind.
Translated into our present day world, it’s in fact small friendly-looking devices that have us wrapped around their apps. And what we all secretly fear is that there’s no turning back.
