Inside a darkened studio, peopled by the sound of ticking gears and cogs, sits a solitary clockmaker. Grown peculiar and strange, ‘Bones’ parcels out time in teaspoons and shadow, until the arrival of a mysterious package propels him from his refuge and sets the agents of fate into motion. Director Matthew Talbot-Kelly’s animated short film The Trembling Veil of Bones employs a combination of live action and computer-generated imagery to fashion a densely layered, richly allusive world of intrigue and revelation.
