The Big Boy

Lee Kyu-tae created this beautiful somber animated short about a gentle giant. The giant is helpful to the local town/village in many ways, including use as protection during a storm, carrying large loads that would take regular sized people countless hours to do, and more. Unfortunately, there comes a day when his massive size works against him, in a very sad way. Ultimately he is shunned from the town, which also leads to the towns undoing. The soft look of pencil and a muted colors makes for a very subtle, moving animation, and Kyu-tae pulls it off wonderfully.
