Storyline

An old man in a solitary cabin is surrounded by mechanical displays he's built in his garden. He goes to sleep on a stormy night with a jar of fireflies beside his bed. His sleep is interrupted by a dream of a day in his childhood when a bear attacked his family. The fireflies seem to bring back the dead, and by the next morning, the sky clear, the old man finds peace. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A marvelous short film. Touching tale told with 2D and 3D animation.
17 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Marvelous short. A combination of animatronics puppetry and computer animation used to tell a tale of life and loss. A story about the cycle of life - all shown to us through the director's fable/fairy tale - fantasy world of images, icons and symbols. An incredible amount of time and creativity obviously went into the making of this short, using both 2D and 3D.
