DELETED SCENES

“Alma” by Rodrigo Blaas

“Alma,” by former Pixar employee Rodrigo Blaas, is a wonderfully creepy short from a couple of years back. Gorgeously animated and impeccably told, it wasn’t very surprising to learn that Guillermo del Toro and Dreamworks have optioned “Alma” to develop into a full-length feature, to be co-directed by Blaas and del Toro. While the resulting feature — if it should ever see the light of the silver screen — will almost undoubtedly have a more upbeat ending, I think it could work rather well, provided they keep the creepiness intact in the rest of the tale.

(Thanks to Mathew Hamilton Watts for reminding me about “Alma”!)
