A Stop Motion Animated Short

The end of evolution awaits in a wasteland dominated by bizarre trash formations, dust and rock. From the scattered remains of a long forgotten culture an electric ecosystem rapidly evolves into the ultimate form of existence...

 

The mechanical life form Ohm inhabits a bleak and devastated planet. The thousands of mechanical creatures of this world share a single cycle of energy. In this cycle, Ohm is a rogue element. His nature is to devour and absorb others. When one day a gargantuan foreign object appears in the skies. Drawn in by mysterious creatures of light, the Ohm tracks them across the planet, changing the known order of matter, time and space.

 

Directed by Eva Franz and Andy Goralczyk this extraordinary animated short film fuses high-end CGI and photographic images, miniature sets and traditional stop-motion puppet animation.

 

 

This hybrid of traditional animation techniques and contemporary technology is our attempt to create a filmic form in step with the times. OMEGA questions the awe-inspiring progress of technology, where machines are less and less mere physical extensions of human beings but rather disturbingly successful colonizers of our psychological landscape. The influence of Japanese anime films, which have been tackling similar issues for some time now, has added greatly to many of the themes in OMEGA. Our aim was to produce an atmospheric, meditative work of art by harmonizing an unconventional but powerful blend of genres and animation techniques.
