This animation video definitely deserves some sort of award as it is that good. Created by talented artist Jacob Streilein, Swelter is a little short film that has no verbal communication yet communities through physical emotion.

The animation is about two people or creatures in an unknown place, the older one retrieving water for the little one, till a bigger guy arrives wanting the water, and here is where the simple yet effective story starts off.

What captivated me at first is definitely the art style, it is simple yet full of emotion, their little eyes and mouth’s simple movement really gives so much effect on the overall animation. Jacob animated this using Flash, crated the backgrounds on Photoshop and composed it on After Affects.
