Descendants

Hi everyone!
„Descendants“ is a 14 minute animated short about the wish of attaining the unattainable
and about the fact that something good can evolve from something evil.

The two main characters are flowers (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg and Christy Scott Cashman)
who grow on the edge of a clearing next to one another. One is old and jaded by a
mysterious history - the other one still young, vivid and curious.
Destiny has brought these two together and it seems as if they would exist without possibility
for change, until one day a visitor to the clearing brings something unexpected to their lives.

thank you for sharing the whole movie!

The whole movie looks absolutely beautiful! Fantastic animation and gorgeous work with the forest and flower art direction. Congrats on the awards too, must have been great to see it well received at film festivals across the world.

I certainly wasn't expecting a mention in the credits either - always felt bad that I had taken too much on at the time and wasn't really any help in the end. I'm amazed at what you've achieved with a very small team - you're a talented bunch!
