Trott, a lonely turtle goes through a hard journey full of greed and ambition, which will play a dirty trick on him.

With this short film, I aimed to create a metaphor for how human beings burden ourselves with things, jobs, or problems, continuously accumulating them under the “I can” mentality, until we reach a point where we either explode or the situation overwhelms us. I’ve depicted it as Diogenes syndrome because I believe it’s much more visually impactful. I sought an artistic style similar to Ghibli or Zelda, two of my favorite franchises, as it’s a style I feel comfortable with and find visually striking.
