Animation studio "Simpals" (located in Moldova) produced its fourth short animated film "Dji. Death fails".
Dji is an unusual death. The Dark Knight has appeared in a different form. No, he is not white and fluffy. Dji is just terribly unlucky. All he has to do is to take the soul of a dying man. But the screenwriters prepared some obstacles for Dji. Will he manage to overcome them? You'll see.
Directed by Dmitri Voloshin
CG Supervisor: Serghey Kirillov
Soundtrack Gogol Bordello "American Wedding"

A year in the making, the full six minute stopmotion short features the voice of Josie Long, one zillion hand carved tiny things, literally tens of carved foam puppets, two eye fulls of in-camera, long-exposure light trickery and a pair of tiny dolphins, smooching.
