The Gold Sparrow (2013)

Set in a crumbling black-and-white futuristic metropolis, void of creativity and color, the city is traversed by The Gold Sparrow and her nefarious side kick, The Ring Leader.

Our heroes, The Strongman, The Fool, and The Monk, perform in the streets as they are hunted. The two sides clash through intense chase scenes and battles for the souls of our artists. Can anyone deny the seductive power of The Gold Sparrow? What will the world be when all color and creativity are lost? Two-dimensional animation over live action create a living graphic novel, a breathtaking and unique action-packed short film.
