"Pour 585" Animated Short


A timid character with a wine glass for a head grows larger than his numbered peers while participating in a prosaic cycle of pouring.

"Pour 585" is a hand drawn animated film that visually interprets the individuals role in hierarchy. The conflict occurs when a cycle is interrupted by a character that does not adhere to the machine-like norms.  This individual ends up breaking the cycle and establishing a new order, possibly even more tyrannical than the first.

Directed and Animated by Patrick Smith
Produced by Kaori Ishida
Music by Leon Riskin
