Moon Melody

Directed by Cleto Acosta-McKillop

6.5 minutes | Milwaukee, WI | G

--

Nikolas, a young boy, lives blissfully watching the world go by. Stars float over his head, butterflies float through a valley of blooming flowers and the sun and the moon chase each other through the sky. Every­thing is warm and sweet and familiar until the Moon chases the Sun into the horizon and Nikolas' world becomes cold and dark. He sets off to find the Sun and Moon and goes on an emotional journey, discovering warmth in unusual places and facing despair for the first time. His journey is guided by the music, Nikolai Rimsky-Karsakov's "The Kalendar Prince" which is the emotional anchor­point of the film and also the base inspiration for the pacing of the film.

Think about this; you may have seen a basketball go through a net but have you ever seen a net go through a basketball?....

The Big Flip is a series of reverse dynamic animation experiments that I’ve been working on over the past couple of years.

The design and art direction is very much inspired by the work of brilliant contemporary artist and photographers such as George Byrne and Petra Leary.

The audio was created by the amazing Mt. Wave Studio.

Sarah finally pulls herself together and starts to move forward, with her animal doll friend named Steven, who’s got a shiny nose to show her way, but – she trips!

Can she make it to the bathroom with help from Steven?
