Orthogonal: an Animated Short by Ollie Rankin

“You gotta look at the world from the right angle”

Orthogonal is an animated short film that tells the story of two young women from very different, but equally challenging backgrounds. They each break free from the families, traditions and expectations that are holding them back and set out to find themselves. Instead they find one another and discover just how difficult it is to bridge the rift between their divergent worlds.

Created in Unreal Engine as part of the Unreal Virtual Production Fellowship, Orthogonal uses motion capture and the real-time filmmaking techniques of Virtual Production to tell its poetic, high concept narrative.

The film won an Award of Merit at the Best Shorts Competition and has so far been accepted into three other film festivals, Oregon Short Film Festival, SHORT to the Point and Short. Sweet. Film Fest.
