Alarm - A Short Animated Film From South Korea
“Alarm” was created by MESAI (Warning: irritating Flash interface), an animation team from South Korea.
The short film tells the story of a young man and his hard fought struggles (against an evil alarm clock) to stay in bed on a bright and sunny morning.
The film is hampered by a wafer-thin, excruciatingly paced storyline – but redeems itself with some top notch animation.
You can download the storyboards and a 720p HD version of the film at their site.
