Short Film Of The Day: Rosa

Why Watch? Breath-stealing animation that draws from comic books and video games in equal measure.

Animator Jesús Orellana definitely knows his stuff. With this short (which feels huge), he’s created an entire universe right down to the last dust fiber. It tells the story of a cyborg deployed in a wasteland of a future to restore Earth’s eco-system. As you might guess, she’s not the only one out there, and things get ugly.

What it lacks in story, it makes up for in style, action and ambition.

What does it cost? Just 8 minutes of your time.

Check out Rosa for yourself:
