Shane Beam is an animator/illustrator floating somewhere between Chicago and Virginia. He has a passion for unique forms of storytelling and unintelligible characters, drawing inspiration primarily from extended periods of time underwater.
CONDITIONER explores themes of nostalgia, self realization, and the futility of anxiety. This film recycles monologues I wrote with my friends in high school, scrambles them, realigns them into a story, and then scrambles them again into abstracted fragments.
