Cool Italian western inspired short ‘Malaria’ by Edison Oda

Learned about this at a post by Robo Panda at UPROXX. Here is the Panda’s description:


Any time you can combine Spaghetti Western sensibility with graphic novelization and the Grim Reaper — and you can keep the whole thing under six minutes — I’m totally there. Edson Oda and friends accomplished this with “Malaria”, a short film about a hitman hired to kill Death to save a little girl from malaria. Oda combined Origami, Kirigami, Time lapse, nankin illustration, props, comics, Western movie tropes, and even fire into one seemingly-continuous shot that feels like an animated motion comic while being much more enthralling because the pages are real and the artists’ hands can be seen.
