Flix for Short: Brave New Old

Nov 14 // Hubert Vigilla

Brave New Old by Adam Wells is a compelling and fun work of experimental animation. The story is told without dialogue and through the rotation of a stage/frame. It's as if we're looking into multiple CG dioramas on a Lazy Susan. The result is sort of like Dark City by way of Fez.

Wells wrote the following to Cartoon Brew about Brave New Old:

I really wanted to try something different with 3d animated storytelling. I feel that 3D is often sidelined, as been a little bit cheaper and less artistic (possibly because of the technical skills required to pull it off) in the festival scene. So I want to try and prove its potential by using what I call mechanical storytelling -- as opposed to the cinematography route that so many 3D film makers use. I feel there is no reason why experimental films cannot be fun and entertaining as well.
