I’m not recommending today’s short film — Toniko Pantoja’s charming Crayon Dragon — simply because Denny Schneidemesser’s music is fantastic. Don’t get me wrong; I would recommend it for that reason alone, if I had to. But I don’t. Because the whole thing’s pretty great.
The style’s a bit sketchy, which I always enjoy. But it’s also simultaneously soft/crayon-y. Which I also always enjoy. (And which makes a ton of sense in this particular context.)
A girl is commissioned to paint over an old concrete illustration. Much to her surprise, she finds herself singing into the world behind the painting. There, she befriends a gentle dragon with a missing wing.
