Ground Play (extract) (2009, 64 MB, 5:15 min)

I stumbled across Robert Todd’s work by accident & I’m glad that I did.
Judging by the extracts on his site, one of which we’re posting here, he will bear
a good deal of further investigation.

Here I love the use of oblique angles, cropping &c. to create a world both highly abstracted
yet naggingly familiar (and very beautiful).

There’s also an interesting dynamic going on between the probing camerwork & the
thoughtful and restrained editing.

There’s an interview with Todd here and you can buy DVDs of his work .
