“The Driver is a poetic animated short film that unfolds a short poem of a train that is on a compulsive rush to an unknown destination. 

It’s inspired by a period in my life where I had to spend many hours on a train for work.

The story of the train conceals an allegory to the difficulty of putting a stop to self-destrucing patterns. Whereas the story is derived from an individual perspective, it makes a statement on society as well; over its apathy and its lack of ability in emracing well-needed change.”



The Design of the train is inspired by the locomotive train designed by Machinefabriek Breda.
