Tamás Rebák is a hungarian visual storyteller based in Budapest, obsessed with sadness and melancholy.
The title is a technical term related to space travel for good reason. It also symbolizes a final determination, which is a hard step to take. The idea itself came from a breakup, which left a deep impression on me. Later, I tried to make the personal energies more universal. This is how the result became an allegorical story of letting go embedded in a sci-fi context.
Anifab judges have scored Escape Velocity a 9.7 out of 10 with one judge gushing, "Crazy good. Simple concept so perfectly executed. A universal story told in a very universal way. Every person in the world can relate to this story without anything else needed. I was inspired by this little animated gem. Maybe even a little misty-eyed. Brilliant."
