Off The Beaten Track
Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson
Animator Leo Bridle's short film about a bike ride is bursting with energy and ideas. A bloke (Mike Sims), shot in speeded-up fashion, heads off on his bike, only to be whisked into a world of animated leaves, fish and clouds which is apt to leave the audience as breathless as he is.
A lovely mix of paper cut-out animation and live-action, it is the sort of animation that advertisers and channel ident-makers love, breezy and entertaining. Created as part of Bridle's A Level project, it speaks volumes as to his talent as an animator. Can't wait to see what he has in mind for his degree.Reviewed on: 25 Apr 2006
