Recipe For Gruel

Here's the whole video:

Saw this video on Vimeo as the short of the week. I thought the cinematography in this film was especially clean, and worked well with the simplicity of the message.

The other thing I noticed was how simplistic the setting really was. Things in the background were half drawn and not fully created. This could be considered lazy, but I think it works so well with the simplistic message and creates this dystopian society where our eyes aren't drawn to useless object. I felt it was very successfully animated and told a story very successfully. It also felt very much like a Tim Burton film because of the coloring and figure drawing.

Great Short film!
