‘From Dad To Son’ by Nils Knoblich

This story exists in its basic features since the fable “The Father and His Sons” by Aesop (600 B.C.) and is told to this day in anecdotes and urban myths. In From Dad To Son we translated a written narrative into a paper crafted animation short. It’s a parable about the assignment of roles of parents and children and the conflicts of physical separation and their communication. And a response to violence of privacy by governmental institutions.

    haha wow! that really brought a smile to my face. and the Visuals were so bold but simple, they transitioned very well from 3D to paper cut outs. really cool Visual idea, and really sweet story.
