i made this movie so i think it's just ok.
it's a three minute bait and switch genre thing that i made to make myself laugh. there are better genre bait and switch short films; heck, don't hug me i'm scared made five of them.
still, i think it's interesting, and in its 3 minutes does some little clever things that i'm happy with. the tone is quickly and well established, i was able to give the explainer-video protagonist some good character, before ultimately stripping it away, and my brother madison did a bang-up job on the sound. let's hear it for madison!
i do think explainer videos have gone unexamined for too long. when will we turn our collective critical eye on the cryptosemiotic sins of kurzgesagt!?!?!?!
the allspring is a real place and it's 24 miles south of the seine.
