ADAM AND DOG

Adam and Dog is another Oscar-nominated short film (you already had a chance to watch Paperman, right?) which comes from director Minkyu Lee, and as you already see from our title – today we’re here to share it with you! Disney’s visual developement artist Lee is bringing us this charming story which examines the relationship between humans and animals… Enjoy!

Minkyu Lee‘s story takes place in the Garden of Eden and portrays the first friendship between man and dog, and the conflict that arises between them when Eve is introduced into the world.

What happened in those first days of Creation that made Man and Dog so inseparable? The dog, as he lives through this curious world, encounters a strange creature; a human being named Adam – and with that discovers a new found connection to the world.

This short film was put together by artists who work at various studios, including Disney Feature, Dreamworks and Pixar. The animation is done by Minkyu Lee, Jennifer Hager, James Baxter, Mario Furmanczyk, Austin Madison and Matt Williames.

Glen Keane also helped by being a consultant on the film, and also doing some visual development.

It is a completely independent film without any major studio involvement.

    give me a break..not Eve’s fault alone- he bit the apple!

      It implies nowhere in the film that Eve was at fault of anything, the dog merely became neglected when she was introduced into the world.

        They blamed her in the blurb.
        and Jen you should be a bit more aware of this type of thinking so it does not hold back you or your daughters.
        Please let be clear that I LOVED this short not only for its content and sensitivity to the canine connection but also for its simplicity in story telling and its beautiful drawings and music. Thank you Minkyu Lee…not a dry eye in the theater I went to. :)

    I stopped watching when the man disappeared. Didn’t look like this was going to turn out too good for the dog!

    After watching syrup-laden Paperman, who cares about its innovative animation, the story is awful and it all looks so déja vu, I wondered why it won an Oscar. Then I watched head over heels, clever script, but again goes for the mushy beady-eyed conclusion… and it is by now one stop motion too many. Now I have watched Adam and Dog… the script tells a very unusual story of a well known tale: very clever. But it is the visual impact which is thrilling. So much poetry! And so many things unsaid but craftily evoked… To mention but a few: that every paradise holds menaces (the black panther, the bad weather), building trust and friendship (along the lines of the Little Prince and the fox), the eternal theme of attachment and subsequent loss, loyalty (the dog), selfishness (Adam once he meets Eve), and the final castaway scene is a moral masterpiece: when humans had it all, they were just happy go lucky and self serving. Once cast away from Paradise, they can create bonds (the dog becomes relevant again, his affection is valued, his role is explained to Eve who acknowledges him). A clever turn to the Biblical tale: adversity can make you better and more considerate towards the others. This short has so many layers… but it is the visual impact, matching many different moods with landscape, colour, movement etc. which is absolutely tops. My winner, definitely!

    The animation is beautiful. The choices in color, pacing and framing are superb. But alas, I just have a problem with the story. I think we’ve beaten these Mesopotamian fairy tales to death. I wish this kind of talent would have been working on an original concept instead of trying to put a spin on an old-hat adaptation.
