Malcolm Sutherland's Hand-drawn Short 'Umbra'

“Umbra” is the latin word for “shadow”, and makes for a fitting title for Malcolm Sutherland’s enchanting short. Malcolm was recently selected to provide an animated promo for the Vimeo Festival + Awards, and I found the Canadian animator’s latest to be an immersive and otherworldly 5-minutes, worth watching more than once:

Hand-drawn in Toonboom Studio with a Wacom Cintiq tablet, assembled in After Effects and edited in Sony Vegas.
