This animated film is called Analogue Loaders, created by London-based director Raphael Vangelis. He specializes in design driven animation projects ranging from short films and music videos to TV commercials.
I love what he says about it: “This short film is my animated autobiography. I spend most of my life swearing at the computer because it’s crashed or isn’t working. Here, well known digital symbols are turned into something analogue and playful. The result is an homage to all the lost time we collectively spend in digital limbo in the hopes of sudden development on our screen.” So, true!
You can also watch the -very entertaining- making of the film here.
