Everything I Can See From Here has a simple quality that is all too rare in animated filmmaking: mystery. As a viewer, I had no idea where the short was headed, but it was an engaging journey in which I was kept thoroughly engaged by the narrative skills of filmmakers Sam Taylor and Bjorn-Erik Aschim. They made the film as a personal project at the London-based collective The Line. It’s a timely piece, too, in that it serves as a reminder that hand-drawn animation is a vital art form that is evolving in exciting and fresh new directions.
