Self portrait is a simple short film. Its definitely not something you will regret seeing, but it doesn't really leave much of an impact. The story is simple, a sculptor creates a demon that comes to life and the demon attempts to become the creator by sculpting the creator. That is really it, no real characterization or story (granted it is a short film).

On the other hand the stop motion animation looks great. As someone who tried stop motion animation and knows at least what goes into it, it was great seeing a complex piece of art . read more

No vocals from character nor subtitles it is just art and a background song
genre:more mystery than anything else.

Story
Not much of a story. The film depicts a action taken only for it to constantly repeat the side effect. Although, it was a loop with no end i got a message from it. Not really focused as of now but in the future we will have stunning close robotic designs that can have automated feelings. We the creators have created them what is stopping our creation from creating us? Spooky thought but an interesting thought.

Art
clay production. Right use of detail and colors.

Sound
the background song works read more
