Alma, a little girl, skips through the snow-covered streets of a small town. Her attention is caught by a strange doll in an antique toy shop window. Fascinated, Alma decides to enter.
“Alma” is a CGI animated horror short by Rodrigo Blaas, which tells us a simple yet creepy tale. In the world of animation, Rodrigo is a familiar name as he’s been involved in several animated classics (as an animator for Ice Age, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up and more, and also as a director for some episodes of Guillermo del Toro’s animated series “Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia”). This little short goes to show that all kinds of animation, even if it’s “cute”, can be quite creepy…
