BSA Special Feature: Turnout – Michael Van Swearingen
Motion Designer Michael Van Swearingen somehow converts graffiti culture into a loveable squishy clean place to break the law, and breaks your heart gently doing so. “Tobin and Sven are street artists involved in a shady lifestyle as middle-men. After Tobin announces leaving his criminal past behind, along with the city, they proceed to finish one last drop off of an unmarked bag. Upon entering a graffiti soaked alley way, they’re confronted by a police officer and make a run for it. Ducking and diving through the glowing alley, they make their way towards a trainyard. With the cops following close behind, a split second decision decides their future.”
