Showcase: Passage

The prolific Ash Thorp is back! This time, with a new collaboration with Friendly Robot.

As is to be expected, the visuals are absolutely stunning as we’re taken on a cryptic journey of our perceived reality and the human experience.

This film is a great example of Ash’s desire to keep learning and the application of the skills he’s constantly refining. It’s honestly very inspiring that today we can see work of this caliber with such a short list of credits.

Be sure to head over to Alt C below for more behind-the-scenes content as well as a bit of insight behind the meaning of each scene.
