EDGAR, a true bachelor, who devoted himself to the compulsive logic of reason and the categorical imperative, denies the existence of coincidences and stroke of fate.
Supported by his best friend KANT, a marble bust, he also despises those to which the inexplicable happens. True to his motto: ‘Every man forges his own destiny’ EDGAR sees bad luck as something for others. If someone experiences it – it is just his or her own fault!
But fate, in the form of truly strange angel, is sending him on an odd path of reformation. The story is based on THE ANGEL OF THE ODD, a short story by EDGAR ALLAN POE.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
„StrAngel – The Angel of the Odd“ is morro images first full-CG in-house production. The content and atmosphere of this hand-animated, stereoscopic, 3D-animated short film was inspired by one of the few comedic, but at the same time wonderful bizarre, stories of past master Edgar Allan Poe.
The idea to transform a literary work from the 19th century into a animated film developed in 2007. After first visual concepts and a first script draft, morro images cooperated in spring 2009 with Twistville to create the final script for a 20 minute animated short. The film was finished in January 2013 and is currently touring the festivals.
