Fritz Lang

If you admire the work of Fritz Lang, the mechanisms of Jean Tinguely or just German expressionism in general then you are really going to enjoy this. A nameless man works in a mysterious factory. Along with thousands of others he works. He does not know what the fruit of these labors might be, all he knows is this is what he does. Yet as his co-workers flag and die around him he decides to discover where exactly he comes from.

Fritz Lang is a personal project by Bjorn Feldmann who completed this animated short in around a year. The entire work was created in After Effects: I think perhaps that Adobe should ask Feldmann if they can use Fritz Lang to show off to the world what can be done in their software by a single individual. The wonderful music is by Chapelier Fou.
