Today’s short film pick is an animated music video titled Storm Boy is directed and animated by Gianluca Maruotti and produced by Ross Macpherson for the artist Xavier Rudd. This clay animated music video is captivating, moving, and awe-inspiring for its subtle complexity and artistry. The music is a moving folky ballad which both brings feelings of calm but also tugs at the heart strings.
In the video we see a man who falls in love, starts a family, and then journeys onto another existence by changing into a spirit bird. The clay animation is top notch with transitions and movements that at times are so subtle that if you blink you may miss the complexity of it. We hope you enjoy our animated short pick of the day.
