With the supposed Doomsday almost a year behind us, we're still finding no shortage of apocalyptic themed arts, film, and more. Some lean on the side of bleak, while others tend to be a bit more lighthearted. Animation team Hey Beautiful Jerk, consisting of Mark Szumski Gina Niespodziani, combines the two moods really well with their animated short, Sleep Walk.
Based off the Santo & Johnny 1959 instrumental song (Which you may remember from the film La Bamba... Or maybe that was just me. Anybody?), the short also takes place in 1959, and features a doomsday enthusiast who finds his one last shot at redemption. I loved the contrast between the harsh black and water, and stylized art with the emotional and soft classic song (which in this short, was produced by Pleaserock).
