The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world…
…so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it’s unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.

This 3D animation short was created during the 2nd semester of my Digital Film Design studies at the Mediadesign Hochschule in Berlin.
This short is an adaptation of a Tim Burton poem, and tells the story of a young, lonely mummy boy. His biggest wish is to be loved, yet no one seems to accept him because of how different he is. Until one day, when he meets a mummy dog who becomes his new best friend.
