“The Show” By Rebecca Hayes

The Show by Rebecca Hayes offers a beautifully animated glimpse into the private lives of performers in a traveling circus troupe. Although the film’s genteel slice-of-life approach doesn’t build to much of a climax, its charm grows on the viewer. The student short was completed in 2010 at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), but released online yesterday.

    Go Rebecca! We’ve got so many extraordinary 2D animators in Melbourne. Really wish we had an industry to support them.

    It reminded me of old european comedies, a bit like Jacques Tati. You don’t see that often these days. Great !

    That was neat – charming even. And proving once more that animation can tell a good story without uttering a single word. Each character had their own distinctive motion and traits, especially the little Pixie (?) messing things up =)
