La dama y la muerte

There are so many short film coming out all the time and I have so little free time that I tend to miss on a lot of little gems especially when the provided screenshot doesn’t do justice to the work.

“La dama y la muerte” (The lady and the reaper) is one of those short films I would have missed if my friend Dan didn’t tell me about it. I love the design of the characters especially “La muerte”, the wacky layout and storyboard, the cartoony animation, the lighting. This reminded me a lot of the wackiness in “The emperor’s new groove” which is a very good thing.

actually… even my friend Jamie told me about it since it was animated in 3dsmax and rendered in his favourite rendering engine Mental ray

    The more I see of it the better it gets. I mean this is just a crazy fun thing to see. The designs, timing, animation style are fantantastic. The over the top stereotypical characters work very well indeed. Inspiring stuff.

    I didn’t think it would go and compete for an Oscar though but it looks like we are not the only one to appreciate the production value of the spanish team.

    It must have been tough to choose between that one and Alma though..

    Thats the ugly part of competitions, both Alma and this one are very well done in their own way, it tends to become down to personal taste almost. Either way its very satisfying to see shortfilms being made on this level.
