It escalates really well. The animator was also the subject of Chris Landreth’s animated short, Ryan.
Been waiting to show this for a while. A recent animation that won a lot of awards. I love how some people are just shapes as they move in the animation
I haven’t seen all of Aeon Flux, but of the ones I’ve seen, this has to be my favorite.
It’s all the little details in facial expressions and character quirks. Like when the woman in the beginning motioned with her eyes, the way one character expressed indignation/anger with just his eyes, or when the swordsman jumped impatiently while waiting for a door to open. The way some elements came back or flowed into other storylines was also just really neat.
