Flix for Short: Vampire Gastelbrau



8:00 AM on 05.07.2012

I love adorable independent animations. Vampire Gastelbrau is the story of a vampire who loses his tooth in an attempt to enter a house. In order to get it back, he must help a young girl and her grandmother with their chores. This particular vampire has an old-school Dracula feel with some Marceline-style feeding habits.

Animator Hannah Ayoubi's style looks like a mixture of sketchbook and watercolor, but it's done in Photoshop and After Effects. There is no dialogue and no sound effects, but the music by Alex Wand does a great job of portraying both conversation and action. My professional opinion is that it's pretty damn cute.
