This quirky short follows a handful of people in various different settings waking up and performing their typical Tuesday morning routines. It’s the sort of story that you could easily see in a theatrical film festival and never think twice about. But by placing it into the new environment of online media, it actually becomes something new and different. It moves at a crawling pace that, ironically, catches your attention among the mish mash of seizure-inducing videos online. Everyone fights for attention by making things bigger, brighter, and faster, and so no one stands out. It takes a well-timed film like this to bring things back into balance.
The illustrative style is very simple and child-like with incredibly simple and graceful motion. Every subtle movement draws an incredible amount of attention to the mundane tasks that constitute a typical day. It is a very refreshing contrast.
