STRANDING, Animated Short
10-year-old Theo as he finds solace in a mysterious beached whale while his parents plan their divorce.
This short is a labor of love by co-writer / producer Reef Oldberg and co-writer / director / animator Ben Kadie
Developed in the middle of COVID lockdown- we aimed to create a story that could be made by 100% remote collaborators
The animation technique is a unique combination of 3D motion capture and 2D character animation, blended into a hand-painted style.
