Woodman (voiced by Paul Fletcher) speaks to the Department of Debt about an outstanding payment they think he owes them. He believes it is a mistake.
This title sequence showcases director and designer Daniel Agdag’s beautiful, elaborate paper city set. The montage of aerial views and shifting angles create the feeling of a great metropolis stretching beyond what’s on screen. Meanwhile, voice-over dialogue introduces the story. Woodman’s frustrating phone conversation is all too familiar, and his physical smallness and isolation in the sprawling city seem to mirror his smallness in the face of an impenetrable bureaucracy.
