Atlanta-based Whitestone Motion Pictures has done it again in John Henry and The Railroad, a remarkable short film that tells the tale of John Henry, an American folk hero whose name has been used in the struggle for Civil Rights and the Labor Movement. Legend goes that after John Henry became a freedman, he took his son to find work in a railroad construction and make a new life for himself. But little did John know that something dialobolical was just waiting around the corner.
Calm your senses and fill your imagination with Origami, a short animation created by Joanne Smithies, Eric De Melo Bueno, Michael Moreno, Hugo Bailly Desmarchelier, and Camille Turon as a CG graduation short for ESMA.
Spanning over eight minutes, the film tells the journey of a simple Japanese boy who will learn to appreciate tradition, such as origami making, through a single, overpowering experience.
