Helping Hands is the latest film by Oliver Sin, featuring his signature bright colours, playful characters and whimsical storytelling.
It's a humorous short montage of "two hands, helping each other out". But what starts off as a charming set of hands aiding each other with tasks such as cooking, DIY or changing the tyres, slowly turns a little dark. Watch and see for yourself.
"The whole 'hands' idea just came around one day when I was randomly doodling a drawing of a small chef carrying a larger than life carrot," Oliver told Creative Boom. "Then I thought, what if I just made the character a hand? It all escalated from there! I wanted to adopt a new style I had been developing over the years, too. It had been a long time since I created a short film and felt it would be a great way for me to express my new creative direction."
