Loom: The Story of a Successful Catch

By Utpalpande @utpalpande
Amoth being caught in a spiders web, struggling for an escape, the moth’s panic movements only result in less chance of survival. What follows is the type of causality everyone’s expecting. The spider appears, claims its prey and feeds on it. The way nature works. But it’s the point of view that creates an intense relationship between the hunter and its victim. There is much more to explore, much more to feel if one takes the time to really experience the content of a split second. Loom is a short film by Berlin based Polynoid Studio, and according to them the most ambitious project they’ve tackled so far. It took the team of directors, Jan Bitzer, Ilija Brunck, Csaba Letay, one year in the making. Founded in 2007 as a creative platform and playground for their in-house films and experiments, Polynoid is now a full-scale production studio. Their narrative technique combines new forms of storytelling with a shared interest in progressive sound design to create a minimalist, photo real and abstract sensory experience. You can visit their website to have a look at some of the amazing work they’re doing. We leave you now with some stills from Loom.
