Film Review: CONDITIONER (Animation, USA)

 A darkly humorous and offbeat comedy animation, CONDITIONER is a piece that tells us that growing up isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Our hero, a middle-aged actor whose only slightly given up on life, recounts his childhood failure to find Bigfoot and his current issue going for a conditioner commercial although he is bald. What makes this five minute experimental short special though, is the fantastical, interpretive and almost psychogenic artistic take on the animation.

Our hero may seem disenchanted with life, but the artwork is equal parts color and whimsy. The contrast of these moving pieces brings a bright, unique edge to this piece- and makes it entertaining and worthwhile to see.



Short Film played at the ANIMATION FEEDBACK Film Festival in December 2017
