Alma - Animated Short Film

Alma from Rodrigo Blaas on Vimeo.



Normally I don't care for creepy stories but this film captivated me with its visual charm. Warning: it is a little scary but it won't make you jump out of your seat, nothing gory either.

For more information about the short film visit the official Alma site.

a bit predictable, but still couldn't turn away. Creepy yes. I guess the audience is as captivated by the story as Alma was by her own image. No escape from escapism.

I love the expressions on Alma's face, how her eyebrows knitted together in curiosity. I always like this kind of creepy-cute things, although it seems a bit trendy now. But this one is really well-executed.

nice graphics to day they couldnt use them for something a bit more productive. I am not one who is into weird stuff usually and this was one of those. they leave me thinking dumb not really. i am far to serious for scifi and stuff like that. i'm no fun I guess thanks for sharing.

yes, creepy! I like how they come back to the names at the end and you realize what they are and how the shop window suddenly looks like a big mouth. I don't watch/read creepy stuff, so I wasn't able to predict the ending -- I hoped she would open the door...

Oh, I just loved that! Of course, I'm totally okay with creepy. The combination of cute and creepy is just perfect!
