Check this short: Lee's Adventures 李献计历险记

I just came across a very interesting animation short online, and would like to share with you guys and help to promote it a bit. From what I read, the entire thing was made by one person only. This person, who is post80s born in china, works at an advertising agency and spends his leisure time making the animation. He spent 2 years to finish the 20 mins short below.

I think what is amazing about this film isn't really about the technical, since you can tell there are a lot of influences from japanese and western films (mind game, shinkai makoto, etc), what really arouses me is that the script is really very well written and the maker has a very strong cinematic sense, his narrative strategy and choice of materials are simply brilliant. In fact, I dare say it is one of the most interesting works I have seen coming out from china in the last few years. compared to movies that are made with millions of dollars, this should really make china mainstream filmmakers feel ashamed.... :)
