“Shadowland” is an animation which portrays the allegory of death based on the interpretation that unattended shadows represent ghosts or souls. An owl figure guides the viewers from a child’s empty bedroom to Shadowland, a limbo place where a little girl’s soul awaits to fully complete its journey from the material world of the living to the immaterial world of the dead. The short film was mainly animated in Toon Boom Harmony and Adobe After Effects. With its images in blue and lilac shades, it generates a compelling ambience, supported by music full of atmosphere.
