WATCH Malaria - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, July 1, 2013

This Undead Monday, change your opinion of motion comics forever with Malaria, a short film that manipulated comic panels to present to you an Old Western tale on a mercenary taking on Death himself. 

Ever watch a motion comic? With Watchmen motion comics, arguably the most acclaimed motion comics ever, we like the experience but admittedly reading/watching it is still a largely peculiar experience given the fusion nature of the medium combining sequential art and cinematic. And the results? A loss of the unique quality of each particular medium.

In Malaria, Edson Oda effortlessly demonstrated to us a most ingenious display of motion comic with the individual sheets of paper containing the comic panels moving in a most dramatic way that both ascertain the cinematic pace while breaking the barrier to connect the audience to the cool tale of an Old West fantasy where a mercenary was hired to take out Death himself.

Hit the jump to check out the official description and the short film itself.

MALARIA tells the story of Fabiano, a young Mercenary who is hired to kill Death. This short film combines Origami, Kirigami, Time lapse, nankin illustration, Comic Books and Western Cinema. My first intention was to submit this project to Django Unchained Emerging Artist contest. However due to time and crew limitations I submitted the short film "The Writer" to this competition. (You can watch "The Writer" here 6 months later we finally finished Malaria. We hope you enjoy it!
