“A story about the fire at the heart of suffering.”
Oh shit. Do yourself a favor and prime your environment for an optimal viewing experience – lights down, full-screen and volume up – this gem deserves your undivided attention.
The attached was created by the talented team at Heliofant, “a nascent independent computer animation studio focused on creating experimental and challenging content” based in the Laurentian mountains just north of Montreal. At present they’re 100% self-funded and you can ensure their next short comes ‘sooner’ rather than ‘later’ by dropping a few shekels into their Paypal.
My weekly album allowance was diverted their way, maybe you’ll consider something similar?
One more thing: Heliofant whipped-up some high-def wallpapers based on the film so follow this hyperlink if you’re in the market for a fresh coat of desktop pixels.

This is like a moving DAIM or SYCO03 piece…only wilder and more tech-heavy. If I’m honest, it could use a tighter edit but don’t let that stop you from watching it all the way through cause the ending is pretty rad. As is the soundtrack by Christ. No, not that dude with the holes in his hands, this guy.
