Polynoid: Loom

Yes, Polynoid‘s long-awaited short Loom is finally online. And it’s amazing! The plot is as simple as “a moth being caught in a spider’s web”, yet such trivial event is narrated under the most peculiar point of view, rich in incredible visual details, intense sound design, realism and abstractness finely balanced together.

Polynoid has been around since 2007, won several awards since then and it’s another great example of collectives that put their effort on doing experimental projects. They made Loom in 2010, while still students at Filmakademie BW. Do check the page for more, including full credits.

    Well crafted animation, composition, but the sound sold me.
    Yeah! Good sound work, and the decay of the victim was well matched by the granular noises. .

    Good job.
