The Confusion Through Sand captures the restlessness of war. It draws you in really quickly and it has the potential to numb your senses. The Cinematography is extremely dynamic; it reminds me of Battlefield or Rainbow Six Siege gameplay. The depth in most of the scenes is cleverly planned and it can be felt very clearly, when the director leads you through deep space. It's a consistent battle between deep space and flat space, for whole 9 minutes.
Confusion Through Sand is beautifully animated and jittery feel of visuals helps the narrative even more. The music and sound effects are integral part of the whole storytelling; it pushes audience to understand the intensity of situation.
I loved the way how director drops audience in the middle of the intense situation at the start and still manages to have time to let the audience understand the lead character. It does have little ambiguous end but the whole experience is totally worth it.
Just put on the headphones and watch it without any interruption and let the Confusion Through Sand sink in!
