Illuminate - A Jaw Dropping Animated Short From Sheridian
Created as his final thesis film at Sheridian, Illuminate is a feature film quality animated short about a girl dealing with an errant spirit that steals light. The quality is absolutely stunning for a one man project, mainly elevated by the absolutely incredible background paintings, the cinematic post processing and epic score.
Illuminate serves both as a reel for Tim Melnyk's abilities as an animator and incredible environmental concept artist. That final, vertical shot featuring the city illuminating up is one of the coolest scenes I've seen in a long time.
