The Dam Keeper
In a desolate future, one small town has survived because of a large windmill dam that acts as a fan to keep out poisonous clouds. The dam's operator, Pig, works tirelessly to keep the sails spinning and protect the town, despite bullying from classmates and an indifferent public. When a new student, Fox, joins Pig's class, everything begins to change. This short film blends traditional hand-drawn animation with digital painting techniques to bring Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi's celebrated painting style to life.
