DUST AND GLITTER

/2011

Dust and Glitter is the first short animated film by the creative duo of Michaela Čopíková and Veronika Obertová under their Ové Pictures brand. The film combines hand-drawing and computer animation.
The film is inspired by the city of San Francisco
and its inhabitants, dust and glitter.

Dust and Glitter is a simple story about two people from different environments who live next to each other
but never communicate directly. Magda, a young, naive girl, astonished by the glitter of the city, yearns for friendship with Chihuahua, a small dog that embodies the posh life. Trevor is an older homeless man who has spent many years on the street,
but now must fight to defend his territory against Hyena. Although they do not know it, the lives and desires of Magda and Trevor
overlap in something that mirrors and indirectly affects each other.
