What Is It About?

Here is the video description for this short film on Vimeo:

Sally, an introverted 15-year-old girl, lives and bears with her wolf-father in the city of New York, where Wolf is slipping more and more into his world of wilderness.
Sally still remembers the man he used to be; a brilliant and talented jazz trumpeter. Where did her father go? And can he still be found somewhere within the Wolf?

UNTAMED was made by a team of 3rd year Character Animation & CG Art students at The Ani-mation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark. Check out the individual student’s blogs at the links below to learn more about the talent behind the film!

My Thoughts

Untamed was one of the best short films and films that I saw last year in 2016, I really like some of the jazz music that was used in this short film, and Pablo Pico is credited as the music composer.

I wish that they would release full versions of some of the songs used in this short film because I would like to have some of the songs.

Untamed takes place in New York City, and the main character is a girl named Sally who lives with her wolf-father.

This short film has a mood and tone that is set by the interesting visuals and the somewhat slower frame rate of the animation.

The music that makes a certain emotional connection and / or response with the viewer even though it has almost no dialogue except for a few people yelling something.

Untamed is basically a story about a relationship between a daughter and her father, what the daughter has to deal with, and some of the problems that her father has.

I think that this short film is worth watching, I liked it, and maybe you will like it too.

The end,

Yes, I watched this short film, which is short enough due to my impatience to know how any plot concludes. I’m not much of a critic in this area but I liked the animation and music, too.
