How Fishy Will the Future Be? [Incident at Tower 37]
“Gestalt” (guh-schtahlt) is a great word.The unified whole – the gestalt – of“Incident at Tower 37” is a trippy little lesson.This animated short film might rate being called brilliant if it clearly made sense.
Nowadays, computer animated technique routinely pops off the screen. “Incident” does justice to this baseline and infuses its apocalyptic tale with the cuteness of a pudgy security guard and a couple of fishy insurgents.
Desert prevails over the landscape.Pipelines connect water from an enormous supply tower to uses beyond the horizon. Maybe the meaning of “Incident at Tower 37” is “There’d be danger afoot, if fish had feet.”Maybe not, but the gestalt of this blip of creativity makes for thoughtful fun.
