an ongoing series of experiments
The Motion Studies films are an ongoing series of experiments that document various
forms of motion and investigate the scientific principles behind them.
Inertia is a (very) short film charting the absolute distance, which a man can run
at full charge while wearing a complete suit of armor.

Motion Studies #3: Gravity
Gravity was shot on a quiet fall afternoon and provides empirical evidence
of the instantaneous propagation of gravity and our world's drag on foreign
bodies. Set against the tragic transmissions of Soviet cosmonauts, it's a short
study of humanity's persistent self-sacrifice for the sake of scientific progress.
