Continua

Continua focuses on physical forms of time keeping in contrast to the way time impacts the perception of reality. This animation is a study of photo realistic modeling, artificial light and shadow manipulation and digital camera manipulation.

The viewer is brought to a dark storefront of an esteemed clockmaker’s shop, closed for the night. The camera pans downward, approaching the front door, zooming toward the keyhole on the lock and entering the shop. The viewer is now brought to the clockmaker’s desk,  where tools and parts scattered. Abruptly, the viewer is inside a grandfather clock, amidst the swinging pendulum, while the bell tolls midnight.
