Mr Lowry is not evil, he's just drawn that way

From the creator of Last Son of Celeste comes an intriguing experimental short film called The Crimes of Mister Lowry.
While the former story is a bright and shiny sci-fi epic, the latter occurs in a dark and grim film-noir (in black & white, even), combined with a graphic novel sensibility. Literally presented as a live action motion-comic book, Marlon Torres has the sets and actors incredibly rendered in comic-book-like illustrations!
Everything actually looks like animation superimposed over the shots--- prestige format graphic novel images come to life.
The story itself is well written and plenty compelling on its own, but the most fascinating aspect of this movie is its eccentric visual style.
