Isn't Monday usually a bit of a drag? You're probably tired from all the fun things you did over the weekend, yet you have to shift gears and get your brain to focus on work. Well, that's where Mondays with Mila comes in, to lift your spirits and start your week on the right foot. I am Mila, and I want to share my passion for animation with you. Every Monday I will post a short animated film, whether it's 2D, 3D, stop motion or cg integrated with live action. So come by every week to lose yourself in a magical animated world for a few minutes and start your week with a smile.
The Monk & The Monkey
A determined young boy, Ragu, is sent by his master on his final quest to become a monk. A seemingly simple task becomes an unexpected challenge for Ragu as he discovers the real value of his quest.
I love this short. It's filled with excitement, intricate textures, beautiful lighting and a sweet lesson. The quality of student work that comes out from Ringling never ceases to amaze me.
