Desanimado (Unanimated)

This short film is about a man who thinks he is different from everyone else – particularly because he thinks he’s a cartoon character.

Told with bits of animation and an interesting monologue of a man who is not sure if he fits in with the world, this film made me think about how isolated people can be when they feel “too” different from others.

I'm the webmaster and author at I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section). I also blog and write short stories.
