The Dark Side

Colosse – A Wood Tale

Crossover – Fabian Grodde

The power of belief can be a weapon as well as a shield.

Cinematically, Crossover is precisely the opposite of of today’s blockbuster movie; while the blockbuster takes actors and places them in 3D CGI environments, animator Fabian Grodde meticulously created a miniature environment and added 3D CGI actors.

There is no official description of this short outside of technical details, and few folks have bothered to step into the breach – probably due to the implied critique of Christianity in the film with the use of the cross symbology. Whether fair or not when looked at through the lens of history (any number of symbols or cultural icons could have been used) the short offers a lesson in the dangers of unquestioningly following the crowd.
