Take a New Look at a Classic Fairy Tale in Animated Short Film RedWe all know last year’s Twilight-esque film Red Riding Hood left a lot to be desired. It was perhaps with that fact in mind that filmmakers Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot created their animated short film Red.

According to the cut line, Red is “based on a true fairy tale. It was created by Jaramillo and Guillot with Manuel Borda providing the score and sound design, which was huge as the five-minute short contains no dialogue. But trust us; you won’t even miss it. This film tells the story completely with imagery and sound.

We’ve got Red below in its entirety. Check it out, and let us know what you think.

As the silhouette of a lonely girl runs through the woods, something in the shadows is lurking after her.

Red is an animated short film, which presents a new version of the classic tale Little Red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault. The directors Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot explore more thoroughly the drama, horror, and realism of the story, creating a journey of feelings and moments with visual and musical elements existing only to carry a clear and strong narrative.

The directors based Red on traditional shadows animation, giving it a new perspective by using technology to create a new concept, while maintaining the visual and narrative force of the classic technique.

The production of the film was done almost entirely by the two directors and musician/composer Manuel Borda, who completed the story by reinforcing all emotions through it.
