Adam and dog by Minkyu Lee
Disney development artist Minkyu Lee (worked in Princess and the Frog) has put his Oscar- and Annie-nominated short, Adam and dog, online. The film tells the old Garden of Eden story, with a touch of canine sympathy.
The impeccable lyricism of settings and lighting (especially in the pre-Fall period), and the almost sparse use of sound make Adam and dog almost a primordal tale of frienship. Still, the storyline languishes too much on visuals, and does not share the inventiveness of the other Academy Award contender, Paperman (John Kahrs).
