New York-based filmmaker Julia Pott combines her quirky illustration style with dreamlike, faded live-action in her latest short The Event. The reverse-chronology end-of-the-world themed story is based on a poem by Tom Chivers. Pott makes smart use of masked screen shapes to heighten the story’s sense of disorientation. The short was commissioned by Channel 4’s shorts initiative Random Acts.
