Solitary Electricity Substations

This is a follow up to another short I made called Former Corner Stores. Both films are (intended to be) about the urban space re-inventing itself in a kind of out-of-control evolution - like all evolution really. 'Former Corner Stores' mimic animal camouflage and warning patterns; 'Solitary Electricity Substations' sing out to potential mates at dusk. Brooke Trezise created the sound design for this one. I shot and animated it in After Effects with some help from Mocha. An earlier version - sans sound and titles - played at Locksmith Project Space as a part of the SafARI 2010 exhibition.
