Audience Reviews for The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello

I struggle to find a true flaw in this beautiful short film. At 26 minutes run time, we experience a lovely tale of woe. A tale of horror and darkness. A trip that I usually avoid as far as cinema goes. But this is a masterpiece. The title is a mouthful, and likewise, there's a lot of food for thought in this short film that will entertain the mind for hours. The animation style is unique and beautiful. It appears to be both 2D and 3D at the same time, with each character being nothing more than a mere silhouette. The film is composed of black, white and grey colors. Occasionally, there is some red. I can't imagine a better looking short film. The music is, likewise, amazing. It's mysterious, and sets a marvelous tone for this work of art. There are relatively few characters, and only three have definitive personalities. The character development is a little fast, but this is most likely a result of the short running time. There is little humor in this short film, if any. Only bleakness, and utter darkness. This is by no means, something for younger children. What this really is, is a masterpiece, made for those old enough to swallow it. If you are ready for the horrific tale of Jasper Morello, wait no more; you won't be disappointed. I wasn't.

This movie is amazing. Even thought the animation is not "state of the art' it captures the essence of Steampunk. This in itself it an amazing feat since so few movies have done so. The story leaves you wanting more. I can not wait until the Director releases the other films in the series.

Extremely impressive. Unique animation style (sort of a mix between James and the Giant Peach and The Adventures of Prince Achmed) and a really interesting story. I loved the look of the creature and the plague. If you get the chance check it out.
