"Loom" - a remarkable animation

Loom tells the story of a successful catch.

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.
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.

  1. Man, that was impressive!

  2. Seriously this animation is one of the best I've seen. Great work keep it like this

  3. Oh... my. The screen capture is an injustice to this piece. And if you are not watching this with real sound, then you are missing over half of the experience. I just watched this wearing high-end over-the-ear headphones and the sound is riveting!

    Wow, what an experience. I think I am about to watch it again. :)
