Sunrise sunset - Clare Brady
1 minute 10 seconds
Padua College, Mornington

"Multiple media techniques and processes have been used to create the metamorphoses that are this world within a world."

Sunrise sunset is the third and last top screen animation, and is basically an abstract animation about some sort of figure continuously morphing into different things, resulting in quite a pleasant exploration of imagination.

Despite being very short, Sunrise sunset is quite an impressive piece of work. The animation is superb, and from the looks of it Brady put a lot of effort into the illustrations, colours and rendering. I can sort of sense that she worked it frame by frame, so it must've taken a while, even for just slightly more than a minute of footage. My only complaints would be that a) she chose too bland subjects to morph (cats, etc.) and b) didn't put enough effort into the soundtrack — both music choice and quality (I could clearly hear static).

But at least it was still much, much better than, say, Pavor Nocturnus (2004).

em_fiction gives this movie 7 out of 10.
