The Incident at Tower 37: An Epic Battle Over Water

The Incident at Tower 37: An Epic Battle Over Water

The Incident at Tower 37 is an animated short film written and directed by animator Chris Perry, within the collaborative animation curriculum at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. The ten-minute HD animated short is a sci-fi film with a message, which was released this week in honor of World Water Day. The film tells the story of a battle over water, between a corporation that dries up a waterbody and the ecosystem that’s being destroyed. Tower 37 is siphoning every drop of water from a once-pristine lake, that is, until the station’s steward realizes that it is slowly destroying an entire ecosystem.

Perry notes that The Incident at Tower 37 is highly allegorical: “The film tells the story of one person’s transition from ignorance to awareness. Tragically, it happens too late to save them. But it shows we have the capacity to understand our broader impact on the world and, ultimately, do something about it. My personal hope is that we all recognize the ticking clock and act responsibly sooner rather than later.”

L’eau Life: A Celebration of Water Moments

Jeff Scher described L’eau Life, an animation film, as an experiment in animating water in motion with water color. He hoped to reproduce both the feel of water and the emotion of being in it, while capturing the water action moments that are the most fun to draw: jumping, swimming, falling in and climbing out. Sticking to those highlights and cutting quickly, the film developed a momentum that began to feel almost hypnotic, but happily so. As it evolved it became a celebration both of water and of summer.
