Matthew Yang's Nada Doctor is an incredible short about an aspiring doctor employed as a temp at a seriously overcrowded hospital. Conflicted between his duties doing simple secretarial work and attempting to do greater good despite his lack of experience, he ultimately finds a way to put a smile on patients faces.
The colorful style of the short drew some parallels to Sesame Street, especially in the sylization and flat color style of the characters and environments. The protagonist himself was incredibly charming in his earnestness and desire to simply help in whatever way he could. Matthew Yang did an incredible job at portraying his ability to animate subtlety in his characters, and all the extra time he spent on cleanup and coloring this 6 minute short (Pretty mind blowing for a one student short).
