SSF: “Inaudible”

SSF: “Inaudible” August 17, 2015

I’ve had my eye on this one ever since I saw the trailer that dropped last month. (And I’ve had my eye on its creator, Gints Zilbalodis, ever since I saw his “Followers” short.)

Now that it’s here, I’m happy to say that I’m not at all disappointed. Quite the opposite, really. I love everything about this one: the unusual (almost felt-ish) style; the subtle sound-work, especially its shifts between 1st and 3rd person; the clever ways in which it follows the oft-ignored, never-erroneous admonition to “Show, Don’t Tell;” the imagery and themes (especially windmills, which I have always loved).
