Unexpected

A quirky animation with a sci-fi twist.
3/5

Review

Herman Stapelberg’s animated micro-short transports viewers to a 17th century fort in Cape Town and delivers a delightful and charming science fiction twist. As a friendly and glamorous alien creature descends upon a group of adolescent students and their teacher, we are taken on an adventure through the fort’s rich history and heritage.

The 2D animation is both neat and well-crafted, bringing to life the architectural marvel of the Castle of Good Hope. Children will be enchanted by the playful and colorful visuals, while adults will appreciate the quick but thorough glimpse into South Africa’s rich past.

It is clear that Stapelberg has put his heart into this project, and it shows in every frame. This micro-short serves not only as a fun and engaging piece of entertainment but also as a nod to the importance of preserving history for future generations.

Overall, ‘Unexpected’ is a charming and family-friendly tale that will leave viewers feeling both entertained and enriched.
