“While you are killing time – time is killing you.”
Timeater is a short satire about a man who eats clocks. He carefully samples the taste, and finds himself admiring it. He doesn't need to go anywhere as his supply is big. Time lapses behind him, as he eats all his clocks, changing from day to night, from summer to winter. The more he eats - the faster the time goes leaving nothing behind. Suddenly the time stops - the man ran out of time and ate his last piece. The man’s skin is old and wrinkly, his body is falling apart.... This seems to be the end. Then animation takes viewers back to the beginning of the story. Now, the man looks at his clocks and makes a different choice in his life. Timeater is a hand drawn frame by frame animation. “Boiling” effect is achieved by overdrawing each frame multiple times in Illustrator and by applying roughening effect to them. Animation composed in After Effects.
