PES‘s latest short, The Deep was created for Showtime’s new “Short Stories” initiative, which should be abundantly clear since Showtime has thoughtlessly plastered their logo over the entire length of the film. If you can move beyond that corporate absurdity, you’ll discover one of PES’s most complex pieces underneath. What really impresses in this piece is how PES is able to discover the organic beauty within rigid, mechanical structures. The sophistication of his timing and movement induce believability of metal tools as organic undersea creatures.
