This week’s additions to the Indie Animation Mixtape (our ongoing Vimeo channel) are mostly quite succinct. Almost half are under two minutes, and the second-longest at eight minutes is a collection of 17-second visual “haikus.
You can do a lot with brevity, though, and the pieces range from a thrift store depiction of the whole of human history and a series of explorations of identity, to anger at cosmic expansionism and an adorable mating rite gone awry.
For more films, make sure to follow our channel on Vimeo.
