An explosive comet crashes to the surface of a candle planet igniting a rhythmic flame. The ground gives birth to emerging wax creatures that instinctively begin a tribal dance. They circle the flame until a second comet draws them from there home, leading them on a sacrificial journey. Written by Mike Dacko

User Reviews

Beautifully made and highly original.
18 February 2014 | by TheBusinessSee all my reviews

Simple, unpredictable, unpretentious and unlike anything else out there. This is one of the most elegant CG shorts I have ever seen, set in a world of wax where warmth is life and yet braving the cold is necessary for that life to spread into the world. It sets the mood very well and everything from the music to the animation is used to perfection; there is attention to detail in this, but no clutter and not a thing on screen that doesn't contribute something to creating the convincing little world that it transports you to for those few minutes that you're watching.

Short movie makers all over the world should watch this, it's like a near perfect lesson in how to make a short.
