Based (loosely we assume) on the true cross-Canada hitchhiking road trip by directors Shayne Ehman and Seth Scriver, Asphalt Watches' hand-drawn flash animated film transforms real people and places into surreal abstractions that depict the essence of their trip.
Below is the trailer for Asphalt Watches, which plays this year's Toronto International Film Festival within the Vanguard programme.
Further information about Shayne Ehman and Seth Scriver's Asphalt Watches can be found on the Festival website, as well as on the Asphalt Watches Facebook page, Indiegogo page and IMDB page.
