Loom tells the story of a successful catch.A list of the awards this animation has received is posted at the Polynoid website. If you're going to watch it, I highly recommend taking advantage of the fullscreen button.
A moth being caught in a spiders web. Struggling for an escape, the moths panic movements only result in less chance of survival. What follows is the type of causality everyones expecting. The spider appears, claims its prey and feeds on it. The way nature works. But it’s the point of view that creates an intense relationship between the hunter and its victim. There is much more to explore, much more to feel if one takes the time to really experience the content of a split second.
Loom is the newest brainchild in our short film family, and the most ambitious project we tackled so far. One year in the making, we took the time to push this 5 1/2 minute baby as much as possible in both storytelling and technique.
