When his dear messenger is dognapped, a shirtless shepherd combines his despondency with his dark talents and quickly becomes a chart-topping musician. Meanwhile, his puppy takes a furious interstellar tour that involves an implausible transformation. At least, we think that’s what happens in Matija Pisačić’s Choban.
At any rate, a animation is surreal and strangely gorgeous, and a low-pitched style—there’s no discourse here—is a ideally uncanny match. Plot interpretation is particularly DIY. (Some images somewhat NSFW.)[Vimeo Staff Picks]
