Peter & the Space Between

This animated short film was made by Sitji Chou, a recent graduate of Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. His film addresses a difficult topic with artfulness and poignancy. The elongated and sharply angular design of Peter suggests visual distress in a German Expressionist mold, and the experimental effects animation and abstract graphics communicate Peter’s inner thoughts better than any literal/traditional character animation could possible do so. The score and sound design was by Raphael Choi.
”about a man who tries to understand the futility of creating human connections when they have been impeded by the microcosmic void between material particles”
