   How To End A Movie?
By Mahesh Pagar
Thursday, May 05, 2016 07:35

This is a great analysis of some of the best film endings. Closing shots are supposed to invoke certain kind of feeling in audience's mind. The closing shots are usually pure emotion. Great storytellers make these closing shots count with incredibly genius narrative beats. Sometimes it's familiar versus unfamiliar, sometimes it's hidden vs unhidden, sometimes it's purely abstract vs strong meaningful semiotics.

Whatever the end is, the end matters because it's where the world of story ends and the world that audience has created in their mind begins.

And here is yet another great compilation of Top 10 Closing Shots of All Time

   Desert Critters Animated Short Film

Desert Critters is a beautifully animated short film about a Fox and little puppy. Where a Desert Fox finds his everyday life ruined when he gets tailed by a younger puppy that just wants to be his friend!

Animation style and character designs are appealing and definitely complement each other. Both are perfectly suitable for the tone and theme of the story. The story explores classic hook where two characters with different motivations and spines come together. Desert Critters is entertaining and the appealing characters in it stay with you.

I hope you enjoy it.
