Nimbus Machina

Created by French animator Thomas Plaete, Nimbus Machina is a wonderfully atmospheric, monochromatic affair executed on a flat, 2D plane. Onboard a gigantic steam machine reminiscent of Howl's Moving Castle, a pilot tries to flee the monstrous storm he inadvertently creates. There's a really stellar use of negative space in the short, with plenty of play between dark and light to sell the pristine exterior accented by graphic exhaust and the moody interior of the pilot's hulking machine.
