‘Fallen Art’ animated short written and directed by Tomasz ‘Tomek’ Bagiński
“Fallen Art” was created by Platige Image, a Polish visual effects company. It’s a story about generals, soldiers, and a very special project (no spoilers, just watch the video).
Bagiński uses sound to weave this tale, which begins high atop a make-shift wooden tower where we can hear the wind screaming. The ribbit of a frog signals the next step in an on-going cycle. A creative lead character contemplates his project and performs a wild ballet/dance to energetic music.
