“Tyger”: a beautifully visual short film with environmental overtones.

Recently, I picked up a copy of the latest 3×3 Annual (No. 4 to be exact), and was perusing through the great artwork that it compiles. Here the entries (about 250 pages worth) are essentially on display via a competition format, but if looking at a wonderful array of graphics is your kind of thing, then this kind of publication can’t help but be a treat.


Anyway, one of things I had a chance to look at this morning, was their animation category, which is presented in full here. The winner entry entitled “Tyger” is just luscious to watch, and definitely has some strong environmental overtones. I’ve put it below the fold, if you’re curious in checking it out yourself.

Anyway, pretty eh? Any thoughts on what exactly the tiger might represent?
