Melbourne Animation Festival Highlight

I saw a brilliant short film at the Melbourne Animation Festival tonight called 'Varmints'. The characters are adorable and the imagery is simply magical. Directed by Studio aka's Marc Craste & based on the award-winning picture book of the same name by Helen Ward and illustrated by Marc. VARMINTS tells the story of one small creature´s struggle to preserve a world in danger of being lost forever through recklessness and indifference. Watch the trailer 'Varmints'
