An award winning animated short film, “Hero Sandwich” was created as a short to explore sand animation. This is the first ever colored sand film. Before this film sand animation was either front light which gave a back and white silhouette look. The other process for animating with sand was front light and that meant that sand looked and felt like sand. This film gave us that space to create a colored sand painted style that helped capture the humane massage about being disabled.
This award-winning short film was a huge success!
