Five Year Plan is an abstract comedy for devices such as iPhones or iPads, using emoji as material with which to draw. It is an appreciation of the arbitrary nature of symbols in apps like emoji, where you can find such things as an egg, a shit, a syringe, a sun, a puppy, an old man, a palm tree or a saxophone in one category to punctuate text message conversations. The script is based on a selection of symbols; it is an attempt to connect them, and to celebrate the unpredictable, hilarious, moving and complicated nature of communication and understanding.

Direction, animation and sound design by Matilda Tristram.
