Anyone (2008) by Ryan Fedyk

New York-based animator Ryan Fedyk's Anyone is an intriguing two minute 3D animation which seems to raise a lot of questions and then (like a lot of good films) answer none of them. A beautifully sculpted pig-like man transmits messages in morse code from a dingy room over and over, until he finally gets a response from a contact who provides reassurance, possibly as a deception.
Fedyk has chosen to reduce the animation down to a series of still images, which gives the impression that we could be watching snapshots taken from the main character's life rather than a series of sequential events. It certainly helps enforce the idea of repetition and isolation.
