Something to Watch: “Land”

Video

So here’s a cool little short film I’ve found that you can watch right now! It’s been on Vimeo for a year, and most of it was televised on [adult swim]’s series Off the Air. However, if you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend you check out Land by Masanobu Hiraoka.

I love this kind of stuff. The idea of liquid forms taking shape to become minimalist imagery is both novel in concept and brilliantly executed. It’s a fascinating piece of animation, made even more beutiful being paired up with Aimar Molero’s soothing soundtrack.

If you’re as mesmerized as I am, take a look at Hiraoka’s other works. A lot of it is in the same style, and it all makes for an enjoyable watch.
