Taiko Studios’s “One Small Step”

I really enjoyed watching this short animation called “One Small Step” by Taiko Studios, which was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year. The animation, which is about a girl pursuing her childhood dream about becoming an astronaut, very much reminded me of Disney/Pixar films with its themes and graphics (and I definitely cried a bit when watching it). Because of our discussions in class, I was able to appreciate subtle elements such as the time lapse, the changes in lighting, and the use of sound/music in building the narrative.
