This is a story of two people who work in a light bulb factory and the curious adventures they have when one of them has a big plan, but his plan doesn't go as he originally expected. The film is pixilated, (people are animated frame by frame) and beautifully shot. Production values are top notch with people moving in synchronization to the naturally moving shadows and there are lots of added bonus touches like moving diagrams and animated puffs of smoke. And even a throw away master shot showing a factory-like atmosphere, a complex shot to prepare (even if it was created using computer graphics) but seen only for a few seconds. The film is short and sweet.
I met the film maker and he was very gracious and apologized for having trouble answering my questions in English, but his answers were easy to understand. He said that the exterior shots had to be precision timed and they only had 15 seconds for each frame because they had to synchronize with the moving shadows. They shot mostly in the morning and fog was a persistent problem.
