Typha is a beautifully animated short that I just recently had the good fortune to stumble across online.

The story is as simple as could be but what really caught my attention is the color. Yes, I like the design and the style just fine but I just found these delirious, vivid colors inescapable.

The values are impeccable and the surreal palette serves to enhance the otherworldliness of this very terrestrial journey. I believe it’s well worth three minutes of your time!

Typha, a young girl living in a miniature village is chosen by her people to accomplish the rite of renewal : She has to bring the egg of life to the forest spirit before he passes away.

Credit where credit is due! I first saw this short film because of a tweet from Zac Gorman.
