Ju Li Khaw "Rain Crowds" (2009)

Ju Li Khaw contributes a second take on the theme of rain clouds today though watch the spelling. Rain Crowds has the proverbial little old lady intimidated by a crowd of austere men in the rain wearing black and blocking her path, their black umbrellas pushing her out of the way. A change of outfit and a vital addition to her armoury sees the lady equipped for battle. I like the focus on character and facial movement, a flickering shadow of worry that crosses her brow followed by the sly rather than shy smile suggesting a more determined approach. Yellow sun defeats serried ranks of black clouds. Ju obtained a Diploma in 3D Animation and Visual Effects at the Vancouver Film School, this being her graduation film. A nicely restrained piece. The link is to YouTube though follow the links for a HQ MP4 download (233mb) or smaller file (58).
