Once I get you up there I’ll be holding you so near
You may hear angels cheer ’cause we’re together


“Two children escape the war-torn ruins of a city in a surreal and whimsical game of tag.”

This is one of those films where you really don’t care about technicalities. As they use to say: it strikes a chord.

Levity is a short film by Gus Trauth, Jordan Held and Adam Lukas, completed as an undergraduate animation at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. The authors work now as a collective under the name MoreFrames.

“Due bambini fuggono dalle rovine di una città martoriata dalla guerra in una surreale acchiapparella.”

Questo è uno di quei film dove i dettagli tecnici contano poco. Come si dice: tocca la corda giusta.

Levity è un corto animato di Gus Trauth, Jordan Held e Adam Lukas, completato durante i loro studi presso la Edinboro University della Pennsylvania. Gli autori ora operano sotto il nome collettivo di MoreFrames.

    Yeah there is some thing about this one. I really liked it! The music is strange though…

    There are some dissonances in the music, which could have been made a little more subtle, but considering they probably did it theirselves…

    Ah yes of course, I did not think of this :)

    In fact it’s easy to forget this is not even their final school project, so good it is!

    It really is, I get the feel of it straight away when watching. I wished I could jump and dive like that with my pals- things would get done so quick around here :D
