Being artistically challenged myself, I admire those who can draw and paint because they can show the world what they see in there mind. Recently I had a chance to see a short film that was nominated for an Oscar that was spectacular called “Feral” by Daniel Sousa.
This story is not uncommon in our society, a young child raised by wolves is forced to return to modern society and encounters difficulties. (The Jungle Book anyone?) What makes this film very different though is the animation style that was used. Being a painter, Daniel Sousa, was able to convey the emotion and tribulations encountered by the child without the use of dialogue. The painting stylist animation makes it feel as if the characters of a book are literally jumping out right before your eyes. If you have a chance, please check it out!.
