This short was filmed on a moving platform so that the movement of metronomes would eventually synchronize together. Myers wanted to match the tempo to a piano piece, choosing Bach’s Prelude and Fugue No. 3 in C Sharp Major. He stabilized the footage so that the platform remained still.
Andrew Myers is a NYC-based artist and filmmaker whose work often explores the processing and output of mass information in the digital era, looking to make controlled sense of a chaotic system of images. His sensibility is delicate, and often plays with juxtaposition and humor.
Growing up in a small town in Ontario, Canada and later obtaining a BFA at Ryerson University in Toronto, he moved to the United States in 2014 and has been working in studios on set building, animation, photography, and filmmaking ever since.
His work has been published in the New Yorker, Time, Le Monde, and Wired, among others, and he has worked for a wide range of clients including Google, IBM, Hermes, Puma, Verizon, and Airbnb. He can be found most days playing around with ideas in his Brooklyn studio.
