TL;DR A 60 second silent 2D animation of Tashka, the telekinetic network described in “Frontier South”.
PROPOSAL I would like to create an animated interpretation of the concept of Tashka from “Frontier South”. I can create a 60 second silent 2D animation in 3 months.
I am very inspired by Joe Bennett’s silent short 2D animations for Matt Furie’s Rare Pepes. https://www.rarepepes.fun/ and their elliptical storytelling. I also hope to use Peter Chung’s film work, both Aeon Flux and his short Matriculated from The Animatrix, as a thematic jumping off point.
I would like to create a similar self-contained piece in my own unique style visualizing the concept of Tashka from “Frontier South”.
This is the description of Tashka from “Frontier South”: Tashka is at once both lifelong-companion, hive-mind, religious belief & set of principles that all Hasblak abide by that was developed by the founding leader of the Vedrik dynasty. Tashka works via a physiological communications network, with all Hasblaks at birth inserted with an implant that connects their externally-directed thoughts towards a supra-network to which all Hasblaks are connected. The Gasik are the esteemed priesthood of this network, being elite Hasblaks who alone are permitted wider network privileges, and to intermediate traffic. The network also contains Vestri, mirror-intelligences without physical form who solely exist on the Hasblak network - each Hasblak is assigned a Vestri at birth to guide their learning and spiritual development, & little is known about their origins. Tashka & Hasblak are inseparable from cradle to grave; it is inexorable, inescapable and ubiquitous. (edited)
