TIM MARCHANT – Tidy Monster

I can tidy up.

TIM MARCHANT: Tidy Monster - MPEG-4 clip
It’s unusual to see CGI movies with such a minimal set as this one: one usually expect detailed textures, complex characters, impossible camera movements…

But Tidy Monster will make Dogville looks like The Matrix. The camera, standing still, shows a few objects inside a room: a chair, a lamp, a heater.

While the narrator tells his story, we can feel his mind cracking and breaking into pieces. And we see the reality, thru his eyes, facing the same fate.

The beautiful short movie has been realized by Tim Marchant at the University of Hertfordshire.

Ben Williams plays the dialogue written by Pete Marchant, and the audio design by Tom Player complements the words perfectly.

Raro è vedere un film in 3D dal set così minimale: di solito ci si aspetta texture dettagliate, personaggi complessi, movimenti di camera impossibili…

Ma Tidy Monster vi farà sembrare Dogville, Matrix. La camera, ferma, ci mostra degli oggetti in una stanza: una sedia, una lampadina, un termosifone.

Mentre il narratore racconta, possiamo sentire la sua mente andare in pezzi. Ed, attraverso i suoi occhi, osservare la realtà andare incontro allo stesso fato.

Il bellissimo corto è stato realizzato da Tim Marchant presso la University of Hertfordshire.

Ben Williams recita il dialogo scritto da Pete Marchant, e l’audio progettato da Tom Player fa da perfetto complemento alle parole.
