Greenaway Shortlist - The Dark - Please let us know what you think in the comments
Laszlo is afraid of the dark. The dark lives in the same house as Laszlo but mostly it spends its time in the basement. It doesn't visit Laszlo in his room. Until one night it does, and Laszlo embarks on a brave journey to meet the dark.
A terrific Film Noire atmosphere is evoked throughout with a clever choice of font and limited colour palette to create a retro adventure feel. Interesting use of perspective and angles to reflect Lazlo's anxiety and the use of abstract shapes actively guides your eye through the story. Wonderful use of light to give a sense of the passage of time and very creative use of dark space in the same way that one would more traditionally use white space.
