Storyline

Tommy Willis is a boy of 10. Living in poverty and with a nagging hunger, he escapes to the wilderness one day to find solace. He stumbles across a lone, withering apple tree deep in the woods and is horrified by it's condition. It has been vandalized, cut into and the surrounding area littered with evidence of teenage indifference. He resolves to put it right, whatever be the consequences. Written by Scott Storm

Trivia

The idea for this film took shape when director, Scott Storm, was walking in the woods near his family home. He found an apple tree in a very odd place, covered with garbage and graffiti. He carried the idea with him for over ten years and finally sat down to begin work on it in the winter of 2010. See more »

The Apple Tree is a poignant short film to be enjoyed by all.
16 March 2015 | by sophia-571-611680See all my reviews

The Apple Tree is a wonderful animated short so worth watching. I think it is quite suitable for the whole family. The artwork is exquisite and there's beautiful craftsmanship in every frame. It's evident that it was thoughtfully made from beginning to end. I liked it because it's not your typical animated short. One of the most impressive things about it was knowing that every stroke was drawn with a mouse by hand, so there's no computer animation! This blows my mind. I also thought the musical scoring was great. I would highly recommended seeing this film. I enjoyed its non-flashy, straightforward approach. The artwork and the message are on point. The only thing I didn't like about it was when it was over.
