“Eight-minute Deadline” is a nerve-racking movie about people who straggle to catch up with their tight deadlines. We created a world where everyone is traveling alone on a unicycle, emphasizing the fact that life is imbalanced. The number eight symbolizes infinity. There is no beginning and no ending. Action is happening in real time, suggesting that life can unfold in a fragment of time.
The film was shot in three days. 5.200 frames of video were manipulated and painted digitally. The full-colored, rusty backgrounds were added last, to create a contrast with the black and white characters.
