810. Maestro – Geza M. Toth


SUMMARY: A singing star prepares for an upcoming performance.

WHY IT’S HERE: Hungarian animator Géza M. Tóth’s ‘Maestro’ is a wonderfully clever short. I won’t say too much about this little gem because it would spoil it but, suffice it to say, Toth has captured a small moment in time impeccably. This is a claustrophobic examination of a performer warming up before a show with the assistance of a mechanised helper. The animation is nice and as the details are slowly revealed and we become aware of exactly what we are watching, ‘Maestro’ quickly goes from an enjoyable little curio to a brilliantly clever little short.
