I caught this beauty at Frighfest in 2004...
29 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I caught this beauty at Frighfest in 2004, as soon as I saw that a film by Dave Mckean was gonna be shown I almost wet my pants. His art and writing skills are seemingly only surpassed by his film making prowess.

This is one of the most beautiful and mysterious shorts committed to film. Visuals are more like a moving painting than anything else I've seen. There are certainly elements of films like City of Lost Children in there, but taken to another level. Visually only Casshern comes close to this, for sheer depth of vision. It just shows you what is possible for people to achieve with some imagination. Too many film makers seem to want to use digital effects to create the most realistic looking sets/ extras/ stunts, when they should be concentrating on making it look as interesting as possible.

N(eon) is a rare treat and anyone who has ever read any of Mr Mckean's solo works or collaborations with Neil Gaiman, should not miss a chance to watch this.

Also check out their latest project Mirrormask, coming soon...
