Here is something unique and beautiful. It’s a short animated film that uses images inspired by mid-20th century advertising art and magazine illustration — a wealth of iconic American pop modernism — all created by and available from CSA Images.
The short is called The Control Master (directed by Run Wrake) and it wordlessly creates a two-dimensional world in which a mad scientist steals a superfemme‘s size-manipulation device and uses it on himself to create havoc through Halftone City, USA. The film contains giant madman on a rampage, airforce attacks, form transmogrification, rayguns, spaceships, lunar colonies, superheroes and tragedy.
Halftone City, USA. A peaceful metropolis of family values and space-age dreams. Mild-mannered blonde Dorothy Gayne secretly protects its citizens from harm. But dangerous new technologies abound. What happens when a powerful device falls into the hands of scientist-turned-villain Doctor Moire? Who will rescue Halftone City from this oversized creep? (Official website)

If you want to download the film and watch it full-size (which I recommend as it looks great!), click here. Watching it on-site will in any case give you a bigger image. In either case you’ll need Flash 9. If your connection is slow, the Veer website has a smaller version here.
