Mucho de Nada Animated Short Film

Share Collapse

I created this short film as part of a competition hosted by the Venezuelan National School of Film. The prompt was 'locked up in 4 walls' so I decided to show a bit of the life of Henry, a strange chubby kid dealing with being alone separated from the world. My intention was to show how when we're alone and everything stops, in a strange way everything becomes louder, the sound of the clock ticking, the rubber duck rocking, flies flying by, etc. and a slight and constant camera zoom makes it a bit more eerie on a subconscious level! We had to keep it under 1 minute, with credits included. This was my first time actually completing a short, with proper animation and color correction and all that. I've always just gotten to the storyboard / animatic stage and then moved on to other parts of production. I'm very happy with the result, the old-film quality of it was not planned from the beginning, I learned how to do it and fell in love with the look and applied it to the short.

This was pretty interesting, it made me sad that Henry is lonely, watching TV alone, and is out of food. The black and white colours strenghtens that feeling too.

It looks nice but because nothing really happens, it feels like an animation test with sound.

I did really love the sound design so I had to give it a decent score.
