Tough West

In the west, it's all about the decisions you make; and if there is a choice to be a chicken; there is also always a chance to become...a legend. So goes the voice-over of this interesting and enigmatic flash animation by Henrique Barone.

It was created for his thesis at the Vancouver Film School which consistently produces high quality graduates with a great future ahead of them in the animation industry.

Barone’s work is unusual for its refusal to necessarily follow the usual three minute story arc and what we get is something much more introspective as a result – belied by the cartoonish nature of the art but accompanied by a great voiceover!
