Short Film of the Day: Chief Serenbe

Why Watch? Because one of us has a home.

A lonely traveler sticks his thumb out against the cruel world trying to get somewhere. He fills up a canteen at a riverside. He looks on down the road.

The trials and tribulations of the highway are made even more drastic and even more endearing when its an action figure attempting to hitch a ride. This stop motion short has a simple method to it that 1) shows how difficult it is to create stop motion outdoors and 2) delivers something magical that stems from seeing a tiny humanoid entity surviving in a giant world of fast-moving cars.

What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.

Check out Chief Serenbe for yourself:
