【The Dam Keeper (2014)】
The Dam Keeper, a short film by feature animation artists Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi tells the tale of a young pig encumbered with an important job, and the meeting of a new classmate who changes everything. The short blends traditional hand-drawn animation with lush brushstrokes to bring Kondo and Tsutsumi celebrated painting styles to life like never before. Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen (Forbrydelsen, Sherlock) narrates the film.
