Tyger (2013) short film review

Care & share:

Check out our Tyger short film review. More after the break.

The short film is directed by Guilherme Marcondes and is inspired by William Blake’s poem “The Tyger”. Here is the full poem:

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

1794

What did I like about the short film?

The movement of the tiger was great. Watching the model of the magnificent creature prowl around a city at it’s feet made for interesting viewing. The animation was also a highlight, reminded me of the Gorillaz, as the people of the city turned into animals. Finally, the music was catchy and went really well with the rest of the production.

Overall:

The short film was creative. I enjoyed the animation, Tyger model movement and the music was quite catchy.

4 / 5 stars
