Second Wind was screened at the 2011 Dam Short Film Festival. The animation is set to a musical composition titled "When I Wonder" by Bartois, which is distributed under a BY-NC-ND Creative Commons license. In keeping with this spirit of generosity, Second Wind is also distrubuted under the same license.
The film seeks subtleties of timing and narrative rather than fast action and relentless intercuts. It is partly an experiment in abstract animation and the use of vague imagery in storytelling.
Production involved processing video footage, rotoscoping, traditional hand-drawn animation, 3D cloth simulation in Maya, plus animation and sequencing in Flash.
