"Pittari" Animated Short


 
"Pittari" Animated Short Film by Patrick Smith

Satan's boulder busting destruction is halted by a stubborn foe, testing his shape shifting abilities. Scored to an old phonographic gospel recording, "Pittari" uses hand drawn imagery to illustrate the relentless resistance to Satan's gritty penetration. "Pittari" is loosely based on Tom Robbin's depiction of Tanuki, a Japanese mythical creature known for his mischief. Animated and Directed by Patrick Smith.
