Basilisk By Ami Thompson : Ghibli-Esque
Created as a 4th year film by Sheridian student Ami Thompson (An abbreviated version of Mami Uebayashi Thompson), Basilisk is one of the most incredible shorts we've seen created by one person in recent memory. Channeling her inner-Ghibli, this veritable visual treat about a treasure hunting lizard has some of the most fluid, appealing animation we've ever seen a student put out. You can tell she put her all into this one, and I'm sure she'll reap the rewards for her efforts. Truly stellar work, and it really makes me question why we don't have more feature length hand animated work in this style considering the type of talent popping up lately.
