Etch (USA | 2017, 3 min)

Directed by: Madison Ridgdill

Etch is a 2D abstract short about a small, lonely creature named Etch who is confined to a shard-laden sphere in the vast abyss of space. He soon discovers other creatures that share his predicament, but this excitement quickly turns to horror. As chaos destroys what little peace he had, Etch realizes just how trapped he actually is. Driven by an experimental and atmospheric soundtrack, Etch explores the concept of lack of communication as well as the consequences of remaining in a cycle of one's shortcomings.
