After releasing the short What Did Jack Do? on Netflix back in January, he has today uploaded the animated short Fire (Pozar) to his YouTube channel, David Lynch Theater.
The 10-minute short was written, drawn and directed by Lynch back in 2015. It was animated by Noriko Miyakawa and features music by composer Marek Zebrowski, who worked on Lynch's 2006 film Inland Empire.
The experimental and bizarre short has been screened multiple times over the years, but this is the first time it has been made available for a wide audience.
"The whole point of our experiment was that I would say nothing about my intentions and Marek would interpret the visuals in his own way," Lynch told the USC Thornton School of Music back in 2015. "So I say it was a great successful experiment, and I loved the composition Marek wrote for the Penderecki String Quartet."
Zebrwoski added, "I thought it was a very melancholic film in a certain sense and also very poetic. Without trying to be too explicit, I tried to illustrate further what David was doing. For example, there is something that looks like a hailstorm and I used a lot of pizzicato, but I also used a soaring melodic line to add a lyrical element to it."
