Omens Studios debuted Gentle rain in several international film festivals, where the animated short has been enthusiastically received.
Directed by Sacha Goedegebure, Gentle rain depicts a middle aged man suffering from depression as he is caught in the rain on his way to work. When a cheerful woman offers to share her umbrella, he is introduced to a different perception of reality. The film is Omen Studios’ fourth original short film.
The film has won 11 awards so far, including Best Short Film at the Asian TV Awards and Best International Film at the SoCal Film Awards, Best Animation at the Amsterdam Short Film Festival, Best Animation at the Tokyo Short Film Festival, the best animation at the Moscow Shorts and Best short film at the Five Continents International Film Festival, among others.
Chi Sim Tang, CEO of Omens Studios, said, “We are pleased that Gentle rain resonates with audiences at international film festivals. The animated story takes a different take on what it’s like to struggle with your sanity and the importance of being kind to each other, two universally relevant topics, especially at the present time.
