Light And Dark: Brilliant Film Shows Line-Drawn Characters Fighting For Power

[Click here to view the video in this article]

London-based studio Animade has created “Chronemics”, a short film commissioned for French and German TV channel Arte.

The film is based on the notion of light and darkness fighting for dominance in a world of contrasts. Light and Dark are seen to be two characters in constant conflict and reluctant co-existence. The film is set in a tense atmosphere and it questions the meaning of one without the other, concluding with the fact that the stronger the light, the darker the shadow.

The animation and its line-drawn, textured feel was created using Adobe After Effects and Photoshop. The simplicity of the design allows the animators to focus on expressing emotion through subtle movements and gestures.
