A tribute to mother


It is very rare that one can tell a story in two minutes. Especially when the story is touching and close to the heart.
But that is exactly what Jonathan has done with his short film “Sherry- like the drink”.
It is about a lady who was a teacher by profession but more than that she was a friend for many. In the small town she lived, people always flocked to her for advice and help and she was more than willing to oblige.


The title of the film is an ode to how she lived her life. And through out the film, the focus on her character as she was in real life is highlighted, as bubbly, fun loving, helpful, inspiring, and always with a zest for life.
The whole picture tells  the story of  her attachment towards the kids and  the people around her. The music by Chris Revgel is just wonderful and in perfect tune with the cartoon characters. I like the way the children are shown playing in the park and how a child uses the slide to join his group.  
The animation was done on paper and inked with ink liners, scanned and coloured digitally.


It is only at the end of the movie we realize that . . .  . read on

Agree with you on that Tonja.
To execute the complete thing, first everything has to be visualized in the mind.
