The Man Who Would Kill Death: “Malaria” Short Film

This gorgeous short film about a gunslinger hired to kill death uses traditional techniques of origami and kirigami paper manipulation to transform static comic book panels into innovative cinematic art.  The fascinating approach to animation is only enhanced by a heck of a good Wild West yarn spun by writer and director .   Definitely worth a watch, kittens.  Enjoy!

    I happened upon this short clip and was so amazed that I wanted to share it. This work manages to combine the graphic novel with film in a very unique way, and it is truly unlike anything I have ever seen before. I would like to do a bit of writing on this clip next week, so I hope I will have time. But until then, enjoy the clip and please feel free to post your thoughts and opinions on it.
