After much rummaging, I managed to find Paul Vester’s 11-minute animation, Abductees.
Maybe it’s the bobbing heads, the Ray-Bans or the rock-step. It could be the four-dimensional surgery, or the way the 'surgeons' walk through walls. Maybe it's the cream-cheesy soundtrack and the layers of irony. Or it could be the line, “We are interested in the concept of rescue.” It’s hard to say for sure. But there’s something oddly beautiful about this.
Vester can be contacted via Duck Studios, Los Angeles.
Feel free to fund my rummaging.
