Storyline

With the use of a wide assortment of techniques, the director and animator Ryan Larkin portrays vividly the diverse ways different people walk. As a result, the swagger of youth, the carefree stroll around the city, a woman's promenade in heels as well as the quiet and dawdling walk of the elderly, are all recorded with a lively curiosity.

Artistry of Movement
26 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm not an artist, but I have some knowledge of painting and drawing. We have here, something that is so avant garde and so physiologically out there that it captures one immediately. Most art teachers would tell their students the hand and the foot are the hardest things to draw and animate. Let's face it. In a five minute film, we are able to view the science of walking in nearly every incarnation.
