THE SMORTLYBACKS (Ottawa international Animation Festival, Ottawa, Ontario Canada 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.0|5.0 Starsììì

The Smortlybacks—short film—has great animation with imaginative and interesting characters, but suffers for no storyline and no character development. The Pachyderms are relentlessly ‘dumb’ with an unclear relationship between the mahout and the Pachyderms. This short film runs itself into the ground before its 6 minutes are done.
