Fresh Blood

No one can confidently say that he will still be living tomorrow. 

Brazilian filmmaker and writer Edson Oda has created one of the most stunning and unusual short films I've seen by taking a comic book story and bringing it to life.

Malaria tells the story of Fabiano, a young Mercenary who is hired to kill Death in an intriguing turn of events. The short runs for over five minutes and combines a variety of techniques including Origami, Kirigami, time lapse, nankin illustration, comic books and western cinema. 

Although he originally intended on submitting Malaria to the Django Unchained Emerging Artist contest, it was behind schedule and instead he submitted and won first place with The Writer .
