Short Film Of The Day: The Breathtaking, Animated Free Fall of ‘Divers’

Why Watch? It’s absolutely the look of the animation that steals breath here, but in this shot from Paris Mavroidis, it’s also the tension created by the simple act of falling. He turns it into an aerial ballet – a sort of synchronized free fall where women in bright bathing suits jump off of sky diving boards.

It toys around with geometry and dimensional space in a trippy, yet graceful way. Like taking shrooms in a tuxedo. Plus, there’s even a last laugh (after the oddly affecting question of what will happen when all of these sky dancers run out of sky).

What will it cost? Only 3 minutes.
