This graduation film was created by Hilde Buiter in her final semester at the Utrecht School of Arts in the Netherlands. It took about 11 months to make, and without the awesome help from classmates and friends this film could not have been completed!
Every frame and background was hand-drawn on paper and then edited digitally.

MALARIA tells the story of Fabiano, a young Mercenary who is hired to kill Death.
This short film combines Origami, Kirigami, Time lapse, nankin illustration, Comic Books and Western Cinema.
My first intention was to submit this project to Django Unchained Emerging Artist contest. However due to time and crew limitations I submitted the short film "The Writer" to this competition. (You can watch "The Writer" here vimeo.com/46235261)
6 months later we finally finished Malaria. We hope you enjoy it!
