Head over Heels (short film)

1 Mar


Timothy Reckart’s stop motion animated short, Head over Heels is an unusual film about a couple that has grown apart. Literally, the wife lives on the ceiling and the husband lives on the floor of their spiraling home. The attention to detail and the patience to create this film is a testament to the team artists involved in bringing this story of lost love together. The co-existing living arrangements is very clever. Watching the simultaneous action was interesting and the figures’ facial expressions said it all, even though there were no words spoken in the film. Head over Heels turns our understanding of relationships upside down for short period of time, which in this case is a good thing.
