Viewfinder: A restorative photo hike in nature, animated

Take in nature through the Viewfinder of a camera with this calming animated short by VCRWORKS, an “animation, picture book studio” based in Seoul, Korea.

The film chronicles a restorative photo hike in the mountains that eventually leads to an open field, high up where time seems to matter a little less. It’s one in the studio’s series of nature appreciation videos titled Rhythmens. The music is by Mid-Air Thief.
