Prey in sight, an easy target: a non-suspecting bird in a tree. El Arquero, the archer, aims, the arrow flies but... it misses. Even worse, it flies and flies and flies, until it accidentally hits the constellation Leo. Great is the archer's fear when Leo suddenly turns into a fierce lion and chases the archer. There seems no escape when El Arquero reaches the edge of the planet. Written by Arnoud Tiele (

A cute little film from a Canadian art student
20 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film begins with an archer on a tiny planet shooting at a bird. The short is errant and starts a chain of unexpected results.

Isn't it amazing these days how even college students can produce exceptional animated films thanks to amazing and readily available rendering software and extremely high-powered home computers? Just a few years before EL ARQUERO, such a film only would have been impossible--especially for a struggling student. In recent years, however, many lovely CG films have been produced by film students in dozens of schools around the world. While not among the very best of these I have seen, it sure is good and very impressive considering Raphael Perkins' lack of experience.
