Having screened at animation festivals all over the world in 2012, 2013 sees Swiss animator Michael Frei launch striking animation Not About Us online for us all to gawp at in utter amazement. Described as “pared down, wordless and whimsical” by its creator, Not About Us combines contrasting black & white/white & black imagery with experimental concepts and themes, to create an animation that feels as innovative as it is playful.
“Not About Us is a symbolic staging of the complex dance of rapprochement between a man and a woman. A mechanical ballet flitting between black and white, light and dark and countless mirroring motions – until at last contact is made and a relationship develops”. – Michael Frei
