Remember what your student films looked like? If they were anything like ours they’ll be a hard to watch reminder of just how much you had to learn at school – however, Derrick Forkel and Mitchell Jao at the New York School of Visual Arts have produced an animated short that looks just as dazzling as most feature films. Pharaoh is a short story of a young girl who has taken the throne in ancient Egypt, and is struggling against the traditions of brutality that the Kingdom is rooted in. The character design is near flawless, with the beautiful textures on the skin, hair and clothes almost overshadowing the beautifully done throne-room set – but not quite. This is one student film that will surely never result in some cringing a few years down the line.
