Title of film: Reactions in Time and Space
Director: David Hill, Josh Goodrich
Animating and filmmaking duo, Santa Maria's experimental piece, Reactions to Time and Space

Here’s some Monday morning visual poetry for you – an experimental film by directing duo Santa Maria aka David Hill and Josh Goodrich, drawing on Charles Darwin’s wisdom:

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”

Three headdresses symbolize three different emotions that are affected by a growing storm. Captured in slow motion, the film flows in an elegant nature. The actors respond in different ways as the wind blows them. The depressed headdress hides while the wild one flails in the wind. The confused headress stares aimlessly as it is wrapped in fabric. Their slowed movements seem like a graceful dance. The overall result is an emotionally driven piece that finds beauty in the changing state of things.
