Have you ever had a day when it rains way too much? Well this short animated film will have you checking out the nearest ark for sure, but will also remind you to enjoy the little things. The storyline is about a little girl, her dog Magic and the rain. It starts to rain and rain and rain until it turns into a flood. The flood carries Magic away and carries the girl's house away too. The little girl tells the story in great detail, which amuses you and keeps you watching. The animation was very creative and original. It looks like cardboard cutouts. The background music is classical music and that, with the little girl's sweet voice are quite soothing. The message of the film is to have hope. The girl never despairs and, in the end, Magic comes back. (that's a spoiler so don't tell anyone) I learned that we should pay more attention to what's around us and to be more positive about life, enjoy the little things, even if it is the sound of the raindrops dropping into a bucket. I highly recommend this film for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals and give it 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it for ages 4 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Ethan X. P. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Jurors.
Into every life a little rain must fall. Those with innocent and appreciative eyes can enjoy every drop. But what happens when life gets out of control? Using the art of New Orleans' artist Mark Bercier, Out of Our Minds Studios created 'Too Much Rain' to take a look at overwhelming circumstances through the eyes of a little girl. When her "Magic" and her world are swept away by a flood, she navigates waters of sorrow and nature and still maintains hope.
