Brazilian writer and film director Edson Oda, who is living in Los Angeles where he is currently doing an MFA in Film and TV Production at USC, has created a unique and visually stunning short film called ‘Malaria’.

The five and a half minute film tells the story of a young mercenary named Fabiano who is hired to kill Death. It combines several artistic features including origami, kirigami, time lapse, nankin illustration, comic books, and western cinema.

Each illustrated panel is seen being placed down in front of the camera, with parts lifted up to reveal the characters’ speech bubbles and other elements included to create great visual effects.

Oda says that his first intention was to submit ‘Malaria’ to the Django Unchained Emerging Artist contest, but time constraints and crew limitations meant it wasn’t finished until six months later. Instead, he submitted the short film ‘The Writer‘ to the competition and won it. You can check out ‘Malaria’ below:
