“Tape Generations”

Dutch artist Johan Rijpma spent six months on the short, live-action animation we’re linking you to today.

The attention to detail—which extends to the film’s editing and pitch-perfect soundtrack—pays off immediately. (“Tape Generations” takes just 20 seconds to turn the thing we’re seeing, and whatever ideas we might have about what’s next, upside down.) But describing the film’s action doesn’t quite do it justice: Let’s just say that while there are no characters to speak of, the finished work has personality, and tension, to spare.
