Polka Dots

2160 drawings were made with love

Polka dots is a short animated film for children I made during my bachelor year. The idea came to mind during a particulary hot summer with lots of mosquitos living in my room.

Polka dots is a story about a little girl and her inability to fall asleep caused by the sound of a mosquito. When the little girl gets up in the morning, she notices there’s something strange going on. The mosquito had instead of stinging her, stung the wall. The wall is filled with mosquito bites. The girl starts her mission: to hit the mosquito from the wall as well as stopping the trail of polka dots visible on the wall. The mosquito, however, keeps escaping so she then decides to simply paint over the polka dots. The freshly painted wall turns into water. And on the magical wall, her new allies appear. This is the start of the battle between the wall and the mosquito.
