Video break: “Between”

Between from Via Grafik on Vimeo.

I’m a big fan of scary stories – not gory but haunting – that imply something exists at the back of your mind that is just beyond your ability to figure it out. Usually that something is a conspiracy, or an afterlife, or some other world that exists parallel to ours. Safe to say, the above video caught me about three seconds in, and held my attention solidly for the next five minutes; that’s not easy in our hyper-distracted world. How does it do it? By giving you just a hint of a story line, powerful visuals, innocence paired with horror, and a fast pace. Hold on, and press play.
