“Contour” WOW Youtube Channel

Dim wilderness and a man who continues to walk in the same area as if dragging his tired body. The man’s afterimages float in space to form a giant agglomeration and cover the man’s head. On land, tentacles cling to the man as if blocking him from walking. Eventually, the man falls to the ground and sinks into his inner world.

Modern people, constantly exposed to information and living together with complicated human relationships. Our self-recognized outlines and boundaries fluctuate, change, and dissolve. A film depicting humans living this repetition with a foreign vividness.

This is an original film by a unit of Ryo Kitabatake and Takuma Sasaki, who received the Best of Stash, Gold Telly Award. The latest filming technology volumetrics were used, it was shot at Dimension Studio in London, and the music was created by Max Cooper.
