WoW Moviewatch: The Kodo Egg

The Kodo Egg by Ollgabopi is a fairly short, simple story. It's not complex or overwhelming. Instead, this story is about the dreams of a simple man, and the narrative is just as straight-forward as the character's desires. I won't spoil the shattering ending, of course.

What struck me most about The Kodo Egg is the detail Ollgabopi put into his scenery. When the man crosses a bridge in a muggy forest, the audience can see dozens of those annoying bugs you always find around swampy areas. While panning through another forest scene, Ollgabopi took the time to animate a squirrel scampering up a tree. Details like these are what makes his work feel alive and vibrant, and helps promote a simple story into something awesome.
