Winter Poem (2011)
Director: Rok Predin
A very unique looking animation with a happy looking skeleton celebrating winter and death in the forest.
The character designs and settings almost look like a paper cut-out, with a lot of angles and snowflake patterns. The music also helped to contribute to the atmosphere and it looks very Eastern European.
There is not really a story as such, but there are recurring characters such as the happy skeleton, a bear, a woman with a gun and a tiger made out of fire.
It seems a shame that these characters would only be used in this one short as they have a lot of potential to do other stories.
