Director / designer David Prosser‘s (a member of Studio AKA) latest entry to SICAF 2012 is Mountain // 산. An intricately crafted animation that adapts Prosser’s personal experiences while traveling in the hustle and bustle of Seoul, South Korea. It’s minimal approach, clever layers, and subtle mannerisms put a smile on my face. Official short film info reads as follows:
“This film is AKA Director David Prosser’s response to a visit he made to Seoul earlier in the year – at the invitation of SICAF – and is drawn from his sketchbook observations of city life. The seemingly random elements tell the tale of a day in the life of three different characters who live in Seoul – all of whom are watched over by the ever present Mountains which ring the city.”
