"Tyger" is a dazzling animation by Guilherme Marcondes, created for an annual festival thrown by the British Council in Brazil. The only requirement was that it reference English culture in some way, so Marcondes chose William Blake's "The Tiger" for inspiration. Marcondes writes on his Website that he loves the poem because it "gives us a hint of wonder along with a fear of progress." We love this short, which had us wondering aloud, What immortal hand or eye/Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
