Shorts from The Animation Workshop

VIA University College, Denmark

For the first time, Films on the Horizon will also include presentations of two new short films from the Animation Workshop/VIA University College in Viborg. We will be presenting the short films Nomads and When the Moon Was Gibbous in their entirety.

NOMADS

Denmark
Director: Anna Rueskov Schleicher

In a polluted, post-apocalyptic world where nomads and their creatures roam the earth, a loyal pack creature is led away from the comforts of home by his ailing human companion. During the journey, the human’s health rapidly deteriorates and she struggles with ordinary tasks. The creature tries to help the best he can although he’s in unfamiliar surroundings and unsure of their destination. As the terrain becomes more hostile, the creature must decide how far he’s willing to go for her.

WHEN THE MOON WAS GIBBOUS

Denmark
Director: Erika Grace Strada

In a lush and variegated alien microcosmos, constellated by curious beasts that go on about their quotidian lives, one creature stands out: the sweet and gentle Chopalong.

The Chopalong is a simple beast that spends his days sitting in his sober sitting spot, as he peacefully observes his surroundings. But his daily routine and the natural order of things are suddenly interrupted by an unusual, blood-curdling scream.
