Out of a Forest

I have no idea if I've shared this animated video before. If I have, I apologize. I just love it too much not to share. This is Out of a Forest, the bachelor film from Tobias Gundorff Boesen. The song is Slow Show by The National, a haunting song that gets in your head and stays there. The animation is so incredible that I go back again and again to watch it. I'm in love with the style. This film made me a fan of The National, made me buy this song, and made me watch this little scene over and over. Tobias just recently created a blog and it looks like he's sharing a bunch of other work. I'm excited to see his other films.

Warning: This video might be a tad too scary/sad for small children or the sensitive. Like me. But I still love it.

Neato video. Thanks for sharing, I just bookmarked it. There is something special about those kinds of macabre stories. Often times there is a depth that too many people shy away from.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, DogLikeCynic! You make a great point about macabre stories. I worried a bit about putting it up because of the dark aspects to it. I'm glad that it suited your taste.

Thanks so much for the comment. And thank you for reading.

I'm glad you enjoyed. I just loved the animation. I didn' even think about the lack of dialogue but you are right. I hope you get a chance to share it. Thanks for reading!
