SUMMARY: A game of football between two boys takes a frightening turn when an unexpected visitor arrives.
WHY IT’S HERE: Bjorn-Erik Aschim and Sam Taylor’s BAFTA-nominated ‘Everything I Can See From Here’ is a film that has puzzled and delighted animation fans in equal measures. Combining hand-drawn animation with 3D , ‘Everything I Can See From Here’ has an enigmatic plot involving a game of football and an alien invader. It is virtually impossible to predict where the short is going and when it ends many have felt a sense of anti-climax but in a world where there are hundreds of animated shorts built around clever twists that sometimes upstage the animation itself, ‘Everything I Can See From Here’ is refreshingly mysterious in its bleakly comical, open-ended execution. Particularly memorable is the contrast between the dull, autumnal skies and the Technicolor headdress of the alien character, whose appearance in the film is unsettlingly incongruous and oddly chilling.
