Four characters are lost in their own worlds in an nameless city, but an event will reveal their intimate connection.
Blending CG 3D and 2D drawn animation techniques, Meanwhile follows four characters traversing a city, each lost in their own separate worlds, trapped in their memories, regrets and frustrations. Building on a distinct style first glimpsed in his previous equally impressive short Forgot, this time former Royal College of Art Stephen McNally uses bold colour schemes and fragments of narratives to examine empathy in urban insularity, creating what himself describes as “a glorious hodgepodge of techniques”. Ironic, delicate and moving, enjoy this multiawarded 5-minute masterpiece celebrating humanity and the intimate connection among people.
