According to his Vimeo profile Kibwe Tavares is “trained in engineering and architecture. Training myself in animation.” Wow! If this is what a person still training himself in animation can turn out, there is no telling what he will be able to do when he feels like he actually has all the necessary skills.
This is a stately-paced piece where we are allowed the time to appreciate the design of each robot and the level of attention given to the details. The environments, the textures, the seeming ‘inconsequentials’ are all well considered and rendered in this film.
Go ahead, feast your eyes.
