Animation! Isaac King’s “Second Hand”

“The term “second hand” refers to the ticking hand on a clock; it also describes re-used items. Would you rather save time? Or save stuff? This film examines the imbalance and waste created by these modern obsessions.” (Issac King)

Just a quick post today: the blogging equivalent of a “re-tweet.”I saw this video on CartoonBrew.com and loved it. It’s called “Second Hand” and it’s a film by Isaac King (whom I know nothing about). The animation is both unique and well done. The story-telling is superb, and the themes are timely. (Also the soundtrack is pretty sweet.)

If you follow this link, there’s a good (and short) write up by Amid Amidi, editor of Cartoon Brew.

Enough said, watch and enjoy! -Jeremy
