Watch: Hand-Drawn Animated Short 'Confusion Through Sand' Trailer
This might be something very cool, and potentially an awards winning short in the next year or two. SXSW has debuted a short trailer for an animated film called Confusion Through Sand. At first, Indiewire was billing this as the entire short itself, but the festival lists it as an 11 minute-long short, which means there's plenty more to see and this is just a tease. Confusion Through Sand is a hand drawn, animated short made by the 26-year-old filmmaker Danny Madden, made entirely on recycled paper, hence the look. The story follows a 19-year old soldier who finds himself alone in a hostile desert, scared as hell and trained to react.
