Description: Set in a beautiful forest clearing “AURORA” gives the audience space to experience the majesty of nature through a time-lapse style narrative of day to night, spring to winter and life to death. This visually rich cinematic animated VR short follows the lives of a young family and all who inhabit it’s vividly coloured landscape. “AURORA” draws the viewer into the emotive storyline by allowing them to get up close and personal with the characters. Fleeting awe-inspiring moments of presence and gentle interaction invite us to reflect on the very nature of time itself. “AURORA” is an uplifting visual feast that packs an emotional punch.




Review: Aurora is your classic 3D/VR animation short film (and when I say sort, I am talking just over 5 minutes). Without ruining the story this is an emotional ride with some rather cute creatures and some good use of timelapse. It looks good, feels immersive and is well worth a look. While I do wish this was free given its short length I still feel people who enjoy this sort of thing should give this one a look. Above all its a beautiful looking experience that is too short for its own good.
