“Into the Flame” is an animated short written and directed by Sean McClintock of Hugh & Cry that tells the story of a despairing man named Floyd whose life changes for the surreal after a moth burrows into his ear. Floyd fleas in a desperate attempt to escape his lepidopteran fate with a breathless chase that leaves him confronting his very own mortality.
Into the Flame follows Floyd, an overworked salesman who’s reeling from the loss of his beloved wife, Rose. A moth burrows into his ear kicks off a surreal and epic chase driving him far from home and potentially out of his mind.
McClintock also made a short film showing how “Into the Flame” was made.
