Adult Swim Smalls “IN_BOX” by Michael Marczewski
The Adult Swim Smalls series of short films continue to generate smiles with off-kilter motion experiments like this low-key comic treat from director/animator Michael Marczewski in London.
Formerly on staff with ManvsMachine and now represented by Blinkink and Eiger, Marczewski previously showed off his quirky take on machine-driven comedy with the short film “Vicious Cycle”.
Michael Marczewski: “Two workers send emails to each other in their office cubicle. Each e-mail is a physical cuboid creature that crawls across the desk to the receiving computer.
“This allows objects on the desk to interrupt messages and cause them to be corrupted in the real world, leading to some unintended office tension.”
