Alright, I think it is time I finally post a comment. I LOVE this short little animation. It's really unique, the colouring, the story... it's something new. When I'm feeling pretty bored, I just love to watch this video again. I wish it had more views. Maybe you should make a sequel or a game? Would be interesting to see what the duo could come across next. :)

This is a great apocolypse concept. It's so hot that in order to live you need special sutis to regulate your body temperatures, but because of the heat there is hardly any sustainable form of hydration... aka all the waters just about evaporated. That's how it looks to me, and whether I'm spot on or not, it's still a very done animation that tells a very realistic story. The man obviously doesn't want any trouble, perhaps for both of their protection, or at least the little one's own protection, so he hands the water over without a fight. However the little one won't have it and thinks it's unfair, just like any child would. They try to stand up to the lumbering giant to get the water back. Said giant ends up tripping over a broken piece of asphalt in an attempt to turn to face the child before falling and cracking his mask. This in turn gives the child a chance to grab the water as she deems it wasteful, before departing. Not before the giant regains himself and stands again, realizes his mask is cracked and the water is missing.
This obviously sends him into a bit of a rage before the heat of the planet leaks through his mask and erupts within the suit. What I think happens is that it's more than just his eye on fire, but that he's literally cooking alive inside his own suit because of the vacuum of said heat and his own body temperature. Making him chase her in an even greater need to get the water. The smaller adult thankfully acts to save the child however and thus the two survive another day.

I have to give this 5 stars and favorite it, I enjoy this sort of story so much, one that gets my mind to telling it at various angles even if there isn't any dialogue. I hope to find some more like this :) Keep it up!
