“Ostracized by his village for being different, Fisher is a lonely being who lives in a small cabin at the edge of the sea. His world is turned upside down one day when in a twist of fate, he is forced out of his comfort zone and thrust into a journey of self discovery.

Directed By Yoram Benz, Music by Marcus Fischer (mapmap.ch).

Fisher is the first self-commissioned animated short film project from One Eyed Robot and has received critical acclaim internationally.

Industry Reviews

“Beautifully rendered, an intricate yet stylized peek into the world of a lonely fisherman. Haunting, strange… a cross between David Lynch and The Incredible Mr. Limpet. I like it.” – Jerry Beck, Animation Historian, Author

“Unbelievable talent. Marvelous graphic design, animation, mood, background, characters, and story.” – Paul Dopff

“Nice combination of 2D with 3D. Great design of characters and backgrounds. The music and sound effects work well to give a good sense of atmosphere. ” – Jim Keeshen
“A marvel of underplayed technical proficiency. Nice Production Design, Strange haunting character design that reminds me of the comic strip work of Rick Grimes. Good animation coupled with a powerful sound design. Odd dream like pacing that kept my interest throughout. Dark and haunting vision delivered with skill. “
– Larry Loc
“This film drew me in totally!! At first, a bit slow-moving, then I got totally involved and feeling for the little peg-legged fisherman!! And the treatment of the sea in 3d contrasting with the 2D characters, really was beautifully done! Yoran has made a haunting film! ” – Bill Matthews
“Wonderfully weird, with very impressive animation skills. first pulll-back is fabulous, as is the animated ocean throughout. ” – Frank Mouris
“Really nice character design and – against the odds – the consistently slow pacing seems to really work for it and adds considerably to the atmosphere created by the visuals. ” – Malcolm Turner
“The minimal movement of the main character expresses a great deal of emotion and acting in this film. A story full of heart.” – Sharon Wu
