Marin is an animated short made by Leo de Wijs during the master program animation at the HKU in the Netherlands.
Marin tells the story of a bumbling architect living in a grim post-global warming Amsterdam. After a subway crash Marin finds an unusual source of inspiration that is about to set off a change in himself and his peers...
Marin is a reversed personal take on the Hans Christian Andersen's story of The Little Mermaid and serves as the exegesis part of an examination into Disney and adaptation practices.
