This mesmerizing animated short, which I called the most spellbinding short film of 2010, was born out of animator Ryan Woodward‘s fascination with the motion of the human body in dance and his nostalgic soft spot for the 2D animation styles of his childhood. The confluence of these two infatuations is the breathtakingly beautiful blend of figurative work, visual Fx, animation and choreography. The film embodies the cross-pollination of disciplines that is often at the root of the richest forms of creativity.
Equal parts tender visual poetry about love and bold creative experiment in animation techniques, Thought of You is the kind of film that grabs you by the heartstrings with quiet visual simplicity and unfolds into incredible emotional range.
