Check Out This Celtic Culture Inspired Animated Short Film 'Drone'
This is an impressive little animated short film that should make you happy by the end. Drone is made by students from the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Scotland. Set in a post-apocalyptic Scotland "when machines have taken over the cities and mankind has retreated to the forests", a young woman hunting for animals encounters an automated drone and figures out how to fight back. There's some refreshing optimism in this film, and it's inspired by Celtic culture. Not only does it reminds me of Studio Ghibli films, but there's a bit of Rey from The Force Awakens found in the main character. Worth a watch.
