Polly - A Very Serious Search

Once upon a time there was a little girl called Polly who had a huge animation - a huge visible imagination (visual metaphor grown huge!). But then one day her imagination disappears and she has to go and look for it. That is the premise for this charming animated short by Swedish film production company Ofokus. It just goes to show that imagination, as well as everything else, needs to be nurtured.

This lovely cut out animation was created using Anime Studio and illustrated on paper and painted with aquarelle.  Natalia Figueroa is the main talent behind this, directing, illustrating, scripting and animating the piece.  Björn Sällqvist provided the translation and the voice narration while Isak Martinsson was in charge of sound with Robert Tzrcínzki creating the music.
