Karni & Saul
Float is a video clip directed by Karni and Saul. It is a balanced mix of CG, live action and stop frame in which a stick man, produced interestingly enough in Maya, makes a laborious journey from urban, industrial jungle where he was created through increasingly scenic surroundings towards the sea. The photography is artfully done whether it be of rain puddles, cracked pavements, discarded bottle tops or Exmoor ponies and coastal scenery. Against this gradually improving landscape is set the wire man, gradually accumulating accoutrements, both clothing and an assemblage of bric-a-brac, that is painstakingly hauled towards the ocean. The film won the British Animation Awards in 2010 and the Annecy in 2009.
