'I, Pet Goat 2' is possibly one of the most visually densely packed videos I've seen in a while (on par with Logorama) containing symbolism relating to media, new world order, politics, business, spirituality etc that I'm only beginning to scrape the surface on.
Bringing together dancers, musicians, visual artists and 3d animators, the film takes a critical look at the events of the past decade that have shaped our world. It is Heliofant's first short film and was totally self-financed with no outside help, either governmental or corporate.
Heliofant is a nascent independent computer animation studio focused on creating experimental and challenging content and is based just north of Montreal, Canada. Bringing together artists from the fields of dance, music, computer animation and visual arts, the company is interested in exploring the common ground that underlies many spiritual and philosophical traditions in a lyrical form.
