Short Film of the Day: Symmetry by Everynone

Why Watch? Because sometimes an image gets its meaning from another image.

This fantastic short takes different images and makes them live side by side in an experience of pure context. Some are rivals (like two soda companies), some are brothers (like two brothers), and some inform each other from afar (a man chewing through his brisket while a cow chews its cud).

It is love and hate, half full and half empty. It is our beginning and our end with everything shoved into the middle.

And tell me that last set of images with the raw sound doesn’t knock you right in the teeth.

What Will It Cost? Just 3 minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that?
