Eider, Eider is a horror and mistery 2D animated short film. Eider is in love and filled with happiness. She is on her prime. However, after a terrible happening a strange presence will visit her. From that day on her surroundings and her mansion will begin to change.
Some frames will be done on paper using a traditional animation desk. However the clean up, the line tests and color will be applied digitally.
The main theme revolves around terror and mystery. Both are conveyed by using psychological distress and fear.
The short film aims to show how a tragedy affects visually the environment the main character inhabits. Negative emotions project themselves in a physical way. They take over our heroin ́s daily life and consume her.
The visual look of the film plays a crucial role on the project. We wanted to portray a cold aesthetic combining soft elements with dark touches. Music also has a lot of importance as it works a tension builder, highlighting the disturbing situations.
The work of Eyvind Earl on Disney ́s Sleeping Beauty has been a great influence to get the spooky feeling of Eider ́s backgrounds.
To get the desired look on the characters we have worked with different styles to depict them.
EIDER Eider ́s style is soft, sweet and delicate, just the opposite to the visitor ́s, which is thinner, cold and stern.
We have prepared a variety of rewards.
