About 4 years ago I posted some pictures from short animation I was working on at the time. Now after several screenings around the world, 'a Sun' is finally on Vimeo!

Description:
On a small island above the clouds a father and a son have different view on their daily routine of keeping up the sun.

Hi, Lauri!, This is so AMAZING!! The characters, sets and music so charming, the bearded man was my favourite along with the fluffy birds, the hot air balloon scene did it for me, it felt quite sad at the end, plus well done on the screening's :)

Absolutely lovely. I love all the little details like the two-person saw on the wall of the house and the goopy welds on the pipes. The pinwheel was my favorite.

Breathtaking piece. Well done!

Hi

Lovely film, what was the inspiration for this story?

Thanks for the nice comments. I am really glad you liked my film!
There wasn't any particular inspiration. Story is based on one of my old ideas, though after the long writing phase there wasn't much left from the original idea.
