Jons and the Spider


The thinnest sprinkles of hope against the backdrop of inescapability by Moth.

Moth are a group of animators & illustrators fresh out of school & this is one of what they do. This one is sinister & eerie, chilling. Chilling in the sense of repetition & its hopelessness. Chilling in the sombre shades of greys & blacks & the disjointed jointness of it.

It’s a very good animation- & how familiar sound effects of tools create realness to one sense whilst pulling away from another.

& in concept the animation has this distinct discomfort caught up in the pleasure of playing the instruments he creates whilst surrounded by the darkness of his inability to attain freedom!

But from another angle it’s the beauty that there is always a little hope, a little freedom.

Press play.
