The Encounter (2018)
13 min, Sci-fi Adventure
Nothing goes as planned when a rookie government agent attempts to hunt down his first UFO, obtain proof of his encounter, and earn the respect of his fellow agents.
This charming, family-friendly short film was created by Indiana-based animator/auteur Thomas DeCarlo. A self-taught CG artist, the film marked Thomas as one of only a handful of people in the world to have created a CG animation of this length and complexity by themselves.
DeCarlo Animation is currently adapting the short into a feature-length animation of the same name.
