Shortz: As the Wheel Turns

Haut de la page

Using bright Flash animation juxtaposed with black and white photography, As the Wheel Turns draws parallels between modern life and the domestic life of a hamster. It is a caustic commentary on the chains that bind us to work. In a never-ending cycle, hamster and workers share a mutual place as they go through their daily drill of dreary tasks and mindless rituals. A film without words.

The Pacific & Yukon Centre of the National Film Board, together with British Columbia Film and CBC Television's ZeD TV, presents Shortz, a showcase of seven one-minute films by emerging and seasoned animators. The task was to produce engaging, innovative one-minute shorts inspired by the theme "on that day..." The result is seven distinct approaches to animation, championing the rich talents of BC and Yukon animators.
