The Present ( 2014)
The short tells the story of a boy who rather spends his time indoors playing videogames instead of discovering whats waiting in front of the door. One day his Mum decides to get a little surprise for his son, which makes it hard for him to concentrate on his video game.
The story is based on one of the wonderful comic strips from mentirinhas.com.br (portugiese only)
This porject is my thesis from Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, got entirely animated by myself and took a little over a year to finish it from scratch to final comp.
