Paul Trillo

A Truncated Story of Infinity Short Film

Why Watch? Imbued with Eternal Sunshine‘s DNA, this fantastic short film from Paul Trillo makes repetition interesting and vibrant by framing a single, unimportant man on an unimportant day faced with unlimited possibilities Gorgeously dynamic visuals are to be expected from Trillo (see his previous work Salience), but not only do we get abstractions like an Escherian tea pot eternally pouring into a never-spilling cup, we also get to see the banal made fresh. Sometimes that’s through the subtlety of fingernail polish colors shifting, sometimes from a television smashing to the sidewalk. There’s also a hint of Stranger Than Fiction here, as the narrator for A Truncated Story of Infinity discusses his generic subject with dry witticism and flatly offered profundity. It’s the blend of those sweeping, plain as day observations and the beautiful photography of common paradoxes that makes this short film a wondrous delight.

Salience Short Film

Why Watch? An experiential short to be sure, this work from Paul Trillo combines humanoid silhouettes with smart camera work and a bunch of colored dust to create some stirring visuals. In the deep description, it’s a potent force arising from figures who seem to evanescence right as they’re coming into focus. In the crude description, it’s like a few slender Predator’s walking through the loneliest Holi Festival. The point being that, even at the surface level, the effect is mesmerizing.
