4/5

Review

Sophia Marshall’s enchanting short animation unfolds a heartwarming tale of a young witch on a quest for friendship in the whimsical world of a local fair’s witch test. Deftly navigating the need for an animal companion, the protagonist’s journey takes an unexpected turn as she befriends a trash-hunting possum, setting the stage for a delightful and uplifting narrative.

The story beautifully encapsulates the highs and lows of friendship, portraying the duo’s camaraderie as they overcome challenges together, leading to a triumphant culmination. Marshall’s 2D animation is a visual delight, exuding charm and capturing the essence of the magical realm with finesse. The absence of dialogue, replaced by a well-crafted sound design and music, enhances the film’s universal appeal, making it accessible and enjoyable for audiences of all ages with no language barriers.

The characterizations are not only well-developed but also immensely entertaining, adding depth to the narrative. Marshall’s storytelling prowess shines through as she weaves a tale that is endearing, sweet, and comical, making this children-themed animation a standout short film. With great attention to detail, memorable characters, and a perfect blend of sound and visuals, this short is a testament to Marshall’s skill in creating a captivating and delightful animative experience.
