Break Down

Directed by Emmett Goodman

3.5 minutes | New York, NY | PG


Break Down is an animated short film about two disparate characters trapped in an elevator. The two main characters, a manic wrestler and a calm elderly woman, each respond differently to the dire situation the find themselves in.  The film is created in a cartoon-inspired style tat combines both 3D and 2D animation. While much of the story is humorous, Break Down also touches upon topics such as anxiety, claustrophobia, and patience.


Directed by Anthony Muscarella, Emily Mai, Winnie Feng, and Lilly Chin-Hong

She spends the night in the forest, and wakes up to find a wild griffin trapped in the back of a stationary caravan. At first scared of it, Butera forms a bond with the griffin and sets it free. After struggling whether or not to return, Butera and the griffin take flight back home where she reunites with her mother. Before they're able to escape, the king finds them and draws his sword on the griffin. Butera jumps in front and courageously shields them before he's able to swing.
