VIEW IN EDSHED

Imagine if an apocalypse had plunged the world underwater, perhaps it would look like this, hopefully, not something from the Busted song or Waterworld.  This short film is silent and only has two characters.  The clock hunter and a little girl who is discovered close to the end of the animation. The film opens with a view of the strange setting, we are left wondering if the clocks are underwater or inside a glass room under the water.  It is not until we first meet the clock hunter that we see that this is his home and it is under the water.  He is waiting for something and at 12 we find out what.  He is waiting for a low tide so that he can go and scavenge for clocks which are mysteriously scattered around the desolate landscape.   It seems like an ordinary day for our hero until he meets somebody unexpected who may just change his outlook on life.
