In this video entitled Malaria, it tells the tale of a young Mercenary hired to kill Death himself. Edson Oda is the writer, director and producer in this short comic book, mixed media short. In the video we start with a static shot of a table and various pieces of illustrated paper being cut, folded and even burned to tell a sequential narration. The planning and careful execution of the piece makes the animation unique despite the story being very traditional. The plot and characters are archetypes, but the unusual approach makes the story memorable. In an era where animation is moving toward the digital, it’s refreshing to see traditional storytelling techniques be just as compelling.
