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.
