Storyline

A lonely scarecrow tries to befriend a group of birds without success, and he can't understand why they don't want to approach him. A blind wounded crow falls at his feet and the scarecrow takes care of it; through the bird he learns why the crows are afraid from scarecrows. After learning the news, he walks to his owner's house in the middle of the night, wakes him up, and asks him to give him another job. Little does he know that such an innocent request will bring what follows upon him. Written by GitanillaOZ

A good Gothic fairy tale
10 June 2013 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

I think this was a pretty well made short: It had an excellent atmosphere and combined in a very interesting manner the CGI with hand-drawn animation, resulting in a captivating and beautifully made Gothic fairy tale.

While there is some clear influence from Tim Burton (Particularly in what concerns to the sceneries and the design of the main character)the story from this short film has its own merits, being a valid fable about tolerance and prejudice, having also a poetical and moving ending.

Even when the narration turns a little bit annoying at moments, it still serves to give this short an effective "old-fashioned" feeling, which is more than appropriate for the mood and themes of the story.
