A different story
8 January 2017 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

A chicken goes for a stroll every morning. Three different people, in three different eras in time, are walking the street when come across the chicken, and get puzzled at the fact that the chicken knocks on the door of the house where she lives.

Different animation techniques are used for the a different eras: a very sketchy simple flat animation for the first, a pop-art sort of animation for the second, and a CGI post-apocalyptic world for the latest.

The film is very charming and funny. I especially liked the last part, which I found hilarious.

I thought that the central idea could have been way more developed to get a rounder more interesting story and feeling, but it is still good.

The people behind this short certainly show their versatility as visual creators, how to twist the same idea and story and give it a different visual contextualization, mood and feeling.
