The simple minutes
23 Degrees, 5 Minutes is directed by and co-written by Darragh O'Connell, a two time Oscar nominee for animated shorts.
It is a CGI rendered animation short featuring the voices of John Hurt as the numbers obsessed Mathematical Professor Orit and Stuart Townsend as his student Babbage.
The professor is inspired to seek out the solution for the Unified Theory, the sought after formula that may explain the essence of life. However time is short and he decides to go to the north pole which is at an angle of 23 degrees and 5 minutes.
Some years later Babbage now older decides to find out what happened to the professor.
This is an intriguing animation which you believe will be a quest for numbers but is destined to be more festive themed. The CGI is quite good with parts very nice detailed.
