quietearth [Celluloid 03.01.10] post apocalyptic news short animation



Back in January we reported on an intriguing PA short called Connected. All we had then was a cryptic teaser that showed us little, but we were hooked. Well, I'm happy to say the full short doesn't disappoint.

Connected comes from Danish filmmakers Jens Raunkjær Christensen and Jonas Drotner Mouritsen who classify it as a "sci-fi western."


Synopsis:
Set in the distant future, Connected is a story about survival and greed with a post apocalyptic wasteland as its backdrop. Survivors of an unknown disaster shuffle through a desolate landscape, as it quickly becomes clear that not everybody has the strength to survive.

Watch the full short here. Via our friends at Opium.

It's stunning, watch it.

yea its well made. and an interesting story of course but dont u think its oddly similar to DAY 26 (http://www.quietearth.us/articles/2009/12/25/Merry-Christmas-from-Michael-Bartlett-Andreas-Samlands-PA-short-DAY-26) ? this kind of very intimate relationship between two people, the whole emphasis on the mechanical breathing as a leitmotif etc?

anyway beautifully shot..just not too sure about the guitar soundtrack. a more industrial/electronic ambient soundtrack might have worked better?
