      I remember coming across these character models in a blog a while back when doing research for my own afro haired 3D character. They talked about how they created the hair textures and shapes right down to the smallest detail such as removing single straggler strands of hair in the elderly man's beard. It's amazing to come across this purely by chance and to see it all so beautifully rendered and alive! So excited to see this!!

      Please get the Turkish dubbing of South Korean TV Series

    5. iamSketchH

      Huh. Was expecting the image from the thumbnail to at least be in the trailer, lol

    6. c.c.

      hello , so my name is chanel, i’m frank’s niece (one of the animators who worked on this film, helped with writing etc) and growing up with him has been a blessing. seeing him grow as an artist and a person means SO MUCH to me and reading these comments really make me feel good :’) congrats uncle frank on your big achievement!!! he’s like a father figure to me, honestly. i remember when he worked at disney, and dreamworks.. and pixar :) once the whole thing is released to netflix you guys definitely will enjoy :)))

    7. Banana

      That bright light scares me, hopefully the main character remains a human being throughout the movie, seriously it's 2020 non-black people should be able to digest a full on black cartoon character now.

    8. Only Jesus Can Save Us

      John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Hallelujah. Repent and turn from sin! Follow God's sacred 10 Commandments! Time is running out!

    11. Stephen Karpathakis

    12. Prince Shakur

      Lol. Netflix is a fascist company. lol

    13. Hisoka Amorou

      You can feel the emotions of this old man and the music. How both of this synergize and creates something new within you? Can you feel it?

    14. Joshua Martin

      *This is not Netflix this is Disney...*

    15. Natalia H

      Oh no. Less than a minute in and I'm already tearing up wtf. I don't even know what's going on but my aura is sad.

    16. F. A.

    18. Georgina Moreno

      Noo.. what is this movie about 🤧😆😍💖😭☹️😃💕🤗😃

    19. jermaine stegall

      It was an absolute pleasure for me to compose the original music for the trailer and for the entire short film. Hope you all enjoy!

    20. MsBloo

      O wow, I remember seeing this short on PAprom a couple years back. To see that it is NOW a full feature film ( is that correct? ) Is sweet! Hope it turns out really well. Since I dont believe this topic has been touched like that in animated movies. Would show kids who have grandparents that deal with dementia some love for sure.

    21. dk black

      What a fantastic trailer!

    22. Earl Green

      HOLIER? The slow creep of gangsterism in communities is essentially the residence own fault. In my neighbourhood, even though I/we stay in all the time, my actions make it clear that I don’t consider the street ‘theirs’ and my yard only mine. Only walking on certain roads and places perpetuates the myth of territories. Though we don’t talk, mingle, merge, or associate; it’s not out of a ‘holier than thou’ attitude, it’s just that we have little in common. But my help, empathy, willingness in time of need to help (and I believe it’s reciprocal) is there. The Church is seen as ‘holier than thou’ to outsiders, but they need to see that, though different, we love them and JESUS does too.

    23. Kingdom Hearts Comments

      I love how we all came here for the hair texture 😂

    24. Rajoan Kobir

      i think it will be a great movie ☺

    25. Rizurper

      I'm guessing, it's a drawing of his wife.

    26. Michael Vivie

      This trailer didn't give anything away.. Don't have an idea what the movie is even about in this trailer..

    27. spicy kax

      the mom thick as hell

    28. Nikki DePriest

      im already so heartbroken at whatever is troubling this mans heart.

    29. Sanghamitra

      1 minute teaser, without any context made me cry. Definitely will watch this to cry in gallons now.

    30. Tülay Gül

      let teh bnha (boku no heero academia) come i love it soo much

    31. Lorenzo Banza

      Netflix at this rate is going to be synonymous with quality entertainment in some part of the world just like Facebook IS the internet in some countries. They are covering EVERYTHING! they got me watching movies in Dutch, Spanish, Japanese they even managed to raise the quality of french tv shows😂 I don’t think Disney or the rest will be able to catch up.

    32. Karl Darwin

      i saw trailer without a single word ("show dont tell" thing). i hit like.

    33. Asterix Raven

      how dominicans be looking but steady claim they arent black.

    34. Krista-Lynn Colegrove

      1. Henry Cavill

        Do you have WhatsApp

      2. Henry Cavill

        You can check

    35. Tara 2daG

      I see this in my PAprom suggestions. Thank you for posting. It looks interesting and I like how simple but mysterious of what the easel means to the character. (Reading the video description with the synopsis I see the character is a painter). :) And the Black Natural for the two characters in this movie trailer/teaser looks good. Great detail the movie makers did so far.

    36. KitKat Savoy

      FYI - This is a trailer for an animated short film, not a full length feature.

    37. King「唱晚」

    43. Brittany Russell

      Wow. This is powerful. My grandfather has dementia and the way I connect with with him is talking to him about his art and my attempt to create art. Can’t wait to experience this film.

    44. Nicholas Blay

    68. Thomas Lopez

      Is Chick-Fil-A behind this?

    69. Omari Davis

      It look interesting but that was a terrible trailer.

      1. J. Ford

        No, it was an accurate trailer! Trailers should only make you curious and not tell the whole story as many do!

    70. Zye Kim

      Ok. Can already see me crying to this. Added to list. Done

    71. Amarachi

      That was a simple and nice musical score!

    86. Denise Freitas


    87. I am Joy

      It’s the lovely African features for me :)

    88. C-Bee

      I hope this is an animated movie where a black lead character hopefully isn’t turned into some thing for the majority of the film like a frog, a green spirit, or a pigeon.

      1. Crystal Lite


      2. what ever

        @C-Bee exactly, and it was a whole different studio too

      3. MundoJuanci

        it's a short film

      4. Raspberry Heart

        Thank you for saying that. I had been thinking the same thing.

      5. C-Bee

        @itz prinx Ahmad Nothing, it’s a great movie but one movie doesn’t dismiss the others where it seems a pattern/formula is present.

    89. Santo Tan

      I know I'm racist, cause all I see in the thumb nail was Old man Lee and Clementine from Tell Tale Games' The Walking Dead. I miss Lee and Clem. 😟

    90. The Dude Abides
