Animation: “Requiem for a Romance”(Jonathan Ng)

 – This beautifully animated short film employs roughly drawn visuals set against a dynamic watercolor infused background to deliver its heart-rending story line.  The interplay between the two voice actors as they go through the painful process of dissolving a long-term relationship, complete with an almost gallows-like humor at times, feels very raw and real.   Break-ups are never fun, but it’s rare to find a piece of storytelling that captures this kind of emotionally-charged event with such finesse and genuine honesty without falling victim to hyperbole or oversimplification. –
