The Trembling Veil of Bones / Le souffle voilé de Bones

Top of page

Inside a darkened studio filled with the sounds of ticking gears and cogs sits a solitary clockmaker, Bones. This peculiar character parcels out his time in teaspoons and shadow, until the arrival of a mysterious package propels him to leave his refuge.

Director Matthew Talbot-Kelly’s animated short film The Trembling Veil of Bones uses a combination of live action and computer-generated imagery to create a layered world of intrigue and revelation.

An extraordinary amalgam of visual storytelling, sound design and animation, The Trembling Veil of Bones reinvents narrative language to trace a journey from isolation to fragile intimacy. As a convergence of events forces the clockmaker to confront the past, fate has plans in store for his future.
