Brazilian animator Henrique Barone contemplates a life above the ocean bed in The Man Who Saw A Boat. Watch the film.

The Man Who Saw A Boat portrays the life of a man living underwater is questioned when a boat floats over his head.

Warm colors predominate, even inside the too-familiar sea bed, and turn to a revelry of yellow and orange hues of sunlight when the eye meets the sky. Even though the boat might at first appear dangerously close to a coffin, an act of courage is all it takes to get a new life in this simple, but affective film.

Henrique Barone  studied Visual Design in Brazil, and after attending AnimaMundi festival, he decided to become an animator. he Man Who Saw A Boat was produced in the Digital Character Animation program at Vancouver Film School, mixing 3D character animation with a 2D environment.
