A Pearl Too Beautiful Not To Watch

How to make movies in a new way: this short film shows the creative beauty of a simple story working hand in hand with technology.

Pearl is a short film nominated this year for best animated short at the Oscars, and rightly so, it deserves nothing less than a nomination, if not the oscar itself.

It tells the story of a father and daughter relationship as they road-trip together and grow together. However, the contrast of a simplistic storyline having layers upon layers of meaning and action almost renders me speechless.

The whole film is set inside their car, not only that, it’s a 360 degree video, which gives the audience permission to make their own decision about where to look.

Should you look at the character? Should you look at what the character sees? It’s up to you.

This film in my eyes was a complete success, as I watched it I simply didn’t want it to end.

See for yourself. You can watch it 5 times and get new inspiration every time.
