Watermelon: A Cautionary Tale
—interesting concept—has good animation and a strong storyline. This short film works more within the horror genre with strong links to a Tim Burton style of creativity which gives it a uniqueness of its own. This short film is a team product of Kefei Li and Connie Qin He from Ringling College of Art and Design with musical scoring by Antonius Nazareth.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?
