A darkly comic short exploring what happens when a familiar environment is suddenly pulled from under your feet...
The story revolves around a group of scuba divers who have adapted to live underwater, drinking, laughing and generally having a good time in the safety of their aquatic bar; until, in a matter of seconds, things start to go horribly wrong.
The film uses bold graphic colours and forms to give a clean, direct aesthetic. It’s animated in After Effects to maintain a vector look, but still has the fluidity of a more traditional hand-drawn piece.
This darkly comic film explores what happens when a community of scuba divers find themselves helpless in the face of a rapidly degenerating party and what unfolds when the familiar is suddenly taken away from us. Take a moment from your day to watch Dam and enter into another world—one that is funny, relatable and wryly apt for our current times.
