RYDACOM COOL ANIMATED SHORT- Sumer

“I’m sorry that you have to grow up in this place. Alone.”  SUMER is a 3D animated futuristic short set on a desolate Earth.

A young boy, Hermes, lives alone close to the wall that delimits the city, an area that is highly guarded by the SSW (SUMER Security Watchers). While observing the desert from the roof of a building, Hermes suddenly sees something that looks a lot like a blue feather floating in the air…

Watch below, and don’t be too harsh on it. Enjoy!
