This Side Up
This short animation film is about a middle aged man who is desperate to get the latest music hits. The film goes through a number of different tasks which he has to do to ensure he gets the music. This invloves a number of problems when trying to download the music. The character in the film seems like a nervous man who throughout the film is trying to impress his idol Elvis Presley in which he has a picture of him hung on the wall looking over him. His character seems to be disorganized by the look of his house in his living environment. His un-manicured appearance and character is obvious from the way he's dressed. With no company in the house it would suggest the character has no real companionship. This mite be over compensated with his relationship with Elvis. The film keeps the audience engaged through frustration as we want the character to succeed. It could be understood that the character believes the computer will bring him closer to his idol. The film ends by us thinking he has concured the task of downloading his music, However our frustration is reconfirmed at the end with a manipulated cliff hanger.
