Nata Metlukh’s self-produced four-minute short Regular is about fonts, yet features almost no text throughout its four-minute run-time.
Set in a world of graphic design, the characters each represent a different font and work together to build a garden. Some of the characters are regular, others bold, and others italicized, but each plays a role in the construction project.
Throughout the film, the rules of physics shift, creating a playful atmosphere that pays off several times with enjoyable sight gags. Sometimes shots are cut in half with the same action represented out of sync in each part, other times objects interact with the edges of the screen as if they were physical borders.
