Keep Calm

The current popularity of adapting the Keep Calm posters from the Second World War gets the full animated treatment here as one literally comes to life in front of our eyes. It is set just after the fall of France and a young soldier listens to Churchill’s The Battle of Britain is about to begin speech from his radar outpost. 

It isn’t long before something mysteriously emanates from the radar equipment.  Are the Nazis on their way to invade? Yet he is the only person on duty and perhaps the fate of the country rests in his hands. Action must be taken! The best think now is to KEEP CALM and… well, you will see what happens next for yourself!  Oliver Harries created this funny animated short as part of his BA at the University of Applied Sciences in Dusseldorf.
