Borrowed Light

Recent art school grad Olivia Huynh directed and animated the subdued, childlike short entitled Borrowed Light.  A young thief of a girl goes around stealing people and businesses of their lightbulbs.  The loss of electric light, one of the most life-changing inventions that we absolutely cannot live without.  Or can we? I loved how touching, and innocent this short is, and really plays on Huynh's self-described childhood influences. In what appears to be a style emphasizing a distinct, washed out watercolor look, it pairs perfectly with the subtle sound treatment and innocent plotline.
