Récession Terminale, sand animation film
David Myriam is a pluri-disciplinary artist who specializes in sand animation. He uses this technique for animation films, but also works live during events all over the world.
Récession Terminale, (meaning in french something like "final recession"), is his last work, produced by Citron Bien (which produces very interesting animation films, like Paphù vs idols).
This short film is a very experimental work, playing on emotions. It describes a mutation, a transformation, in a dark and frightening style. I think that the main notion of the film turns around identity and consciousness. The editing and the sound track give the film a nice rythm and dynamic, which is often a problem in linear and slow sand animation films.
The film is currently broadcasted by european channel Arte, via the online platform Arte Creative.
