Director Statement

"My goal with 'CAVITY' was to create a dynamic, trippy animation inspired by the TV shows and commercials I saw late at night as a kid. I sought to capture that feeling of sitting on the cold living room floor watching animated characters bounce around on screen with my own experimental twist." - Spencer Nicklaus
