When animator Adrian Dexter set out to make his short fantasy flick Væsen, he had a very clear aesthetic in mind. "Basically I wanted Rankin-Bass on acid, written by Borges," he explained to Cartoon Brew. Dexter created this film for his bachelor's project at Denmark's Animation Workshop. Here's the synopsis:
A prince sets off on a journey to save his dying father, driven by his fear of failing him.
The final product is trippy as balls, a twinge NSFW, and makes me want to throw on some Jethro Tull or Tangerine Dream.
