‘Ruin’ Animated Short Film Set
Ruin is an animated action short film set “way in the future” in a green post-apocalyptic universe. Directed by Wes Ball, who has been working in Hollywood for 8 years doing graphic work for HBO and DVD/Blu-ray featureetes. A graduate of Florida State University, Tallahasse, his 2003 short film A Work in Progress won the Bronze Metal at the Student Adacemy Awards.
Theres not a single dialogue in the Ruin but it does speaks volume in terms of presenting high-concept science fiction. Described simply as an “animated short set in a post-apocalyptic universe”, it features an awesome motorcycle chase-sequence as its being attack from a futuristic aircraft. It seems the story involves an ecological disaster possibly caused by a corporation but theres many questions left unanswered. Who is this lone man? What does he seek and why is he being attacked? Perhaps we’ll find out in a sequel as implied at the end of the credits.
Director Wes Ball, along with his company Oddball Animation has been sporadically working on this passion project over the last two years. Ball is an experienced graphic artist for HBO who previously directed an award-winning student short film A Work in Progress. His studio is currently developing an animated featured film In Search of Humans.
Ball’s company Oddball Animation has a complete behind the scenes making of progression of the short on their website.
