Its always a pleasure when I come across truly beautiful animation from new and talented animators like this. Directed by Moritz Mayerhofer, a graduated student at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg of Germany, Urs
is a visually stunning 10-minute animated short-film that combines matte paintings and stylize CG characters. He worked
on the short
for three years as his final thesis
project and now its making the festival rounds globally.
For more information, artwork and festival-screening dates, go to the official site. You'll find the trailer embedded below.
Many years Urs looked after his aging mother. But now he sets out for a dangerous journey: He carries her up a mountain to find a better place for both of them. But his mother doesn't want to leave her home...
URS is a story about responsibility. How long can you bear an intolerable condition? Isn't it good to try to change things? But what about others. Can you really decide what's the best for someone else?
