Indie French animation studio Gobelins made this awesome short film Royal Madness.
The story is about a king who slays monsters from all over his kingdom. Time and time again, he takes out the creatures that were putting his people at risk. He was really really good at it. In fact he was… too good at it. He slayed himself out of a job and soon became bored, as he had no more monsters to kill.
His young daughter decides to cheer him up by creating a huge wooden monster that he could fight. She does this all without him knowing to make it more believable. He falls for it and commences battle with the beast. But, after chopping off one it it’s arms, he realises that it’s fake. He stops fighting it, but then notices his small daughter slipping from the top. Now she actually is in real danger. He saves her just in time and realises afterwards that he doesn’t just need to kill monsters to find fulfilment in life, he can find fulfilment through the love he has for his daughter.
