It’s just another pleasant day on the island among a flock of feathered friends when the earth comes literally crashing down. In a desperate bid to save their four eggs, two sparring bird parents try to reconcile their differences while making a grand escape down the side of an erupting volcano, attempting various ways to keep their offspring out of harm’s way. The awkward orbs can be thrown into a tree, or even held in place with both wing.

Students at the École des Nouvelles Images, “BOOM” has been shortlisted in the best animated short film category for an Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards. The piece has been screened at many festivals and won 30 additional awards in the past two years. This includes a gold award at the 2023 Student Academy Awards.
