SSF: “The Monk & The Monkey”

This one’s short and straightforward, yes.  But also visually inventive — the tree and the time-lapse sequence actually made me catch my breath — and the story is charming despite its predictability:

I was not familiar with the short’s directorial duo — Brendan Carroll and Francesco Giroldini — but a quick search turned up the fact that Giroldini has worked as a “shot lighting artist” on a number of Dreamworks Animation’s feature films, including the Kung-Fu Panda sequel. Which makes a ton of sense, in hindsight.
