SHORT: FINISHING TOUCHES

SHORT: FINISHING TOUCHES

This 3D animated short focuses on the Mask Maker who lives in a tower at the center of a small town. He spends his days meticulously carving masks for his neighbors, the small dolls who inhabit the town. These little citizens derive their life force, as well as their personality, from the masks he makes. However, despite the hundreds of dolls happily animated, the Mask Maker obsesses over his task meticulously, incapable of achieving a satisfying result. One day, two damaged dolls, Iri and Vari, make their way inside the secluded studio. What they find may change the town, and it’s Mask Maker forever…
