The Hold from Sven Ran on Vimeo.

"A man wants to run but seems to be trapped by strangely sinister lacuna, depicted as balloons. He only overcomes paralysis after extirpating them from his being and taking control of his environment. The balloon represent the prejudices and complexes that respectively surround and implode an individual. Helium contraptions and biases both seem lightweight, can make you light-headed, but can remove you from the solid state of reality."

Music: "Good Hold" Toro y Moi
