Here's a beautifully animated romantic martial arts short film called "Requiem For Romance." This is a stunning short. It has a great concept, and the technique is brilliant. I'd like to see another short like this get made. The movie was created by Jonathan Ng, and here's a statement that came along with the film:
In this "crouching love, hidden breakup" story, inspired by 50's Shanghai water ink animation & kung fu films, themes of distance, tradition, art and longing dominate a telephonic conversation as a martial arts tango provides the visual backdrop.
Shannon Kook, star of Degrassi the Next Generation and The Conjuring, won the best voice performance at the ACTRA awards for his role on the film. Vid Cousins and Kid Koala teamed up again to create the atmospheric music.
Enjoy the short!
