"Night Sky" has parallel, overlapping stories: two girls—Cleo and Jay—travel through the desert while a group of contestants compete in a current-day dance marathon. A small hula-hoop serves as a window between worlds.
Night Sky has parallel, overlapping stories: two girls—Cleo and Jay—travel through the desert while a group of contestants compete in a current-day dance marathon. A small hula-hoop serves as a window between worlds, hovering unnoticed in the midst of the marathon contestants and simultaneously hanging in the desert air. Sound bleeds between the locations, drawing attention to parallel series of events, while locations collapse into one another and places formerly encountered continue to announce their presence.
Cinematography by Tom Clancey Score by Ethan Frederick Greene Animation by Lisa Ramsey and Justin Acree Effects by William Downes and Matt Chea Directed by Alison O’Daniel
