“Catatonic” by Einar Baldvin

Einar Baldvin created Catatonic as his thesis film for the CalArts Experimental Animation program. The film combines hand-drawn cut-outs with pastel chalks, animated by hand and in After Effects. The real attraction in the film is the daring cut-out animation style, especially the violently spastic reaction of the kid towards the end.
