CB Fest, our series of online short film premieres, enters its second season with Fernanda Frick’s Here’s the Plan (Chile, 2017), a cg short film about a cat-and-dog couple working through the ups and the downs of modern relationships with a partner.
Here’s the Plan is Frick’s fourth and most ambitious film to date. Her maturing voice as an animation filmmaker is evident in this project; she reaches beyond standard cliches and portrays a dynamic relationship of a young couple struggling to balance their careers and passions, and to uncover what truly matters to them. From the stylized rendering to the natural character voices, the film offers unconventional directorial choices, integrated through Frick’s clear guiding vision.
Tonight’s premiere of Here’s the Plan is co-presented with the short film experts at Short of the Week. For more insights, read their informative write-up about the film.
