Paint Showers (click for the video) is a beautiful animated short directed and animated by LA-based Miguel Jiron. Filmed back in 2011, the piece was made by photographing sequences of paint drips and splashes which were then set to sounds of rain creating an otherworldly thunderstorm of paint. The video has been preselected in several festival such as Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) 2011, LA 3D Festival 2011, New York International Childrens Film Festival (NYICFF) 2012, South by Southwest (SXSW) 2012, TIFF Kids! 2012
