In 2012, I made this short animated film about a boy who searches for a girl in a desert that is patrolled by a mysterious policeman. This animation was accepted into a few film festivals and it even won a Platinum Remi Award at WorldFest Houston 2013.

 

I had some free time over the Winter Break, so I decided to restore and improve the film – something I’ve wanted to do for a while. Image quality is improved, backgrounds are touched up, color is enhanced, new animation has been added, and the score is remixed.

 

Think of this as my Director’s Cut! It’s my preferred version of the film. That being said, if you’re at all curious to see the differences between the two versions, you can still find the Festival Cut to this obscure little film on Youtube as well. It's not the one I prefer to show so you'll have to do some digging...

 

Hope you enjoy this restored cut of my first animated film!
