“Shhh” is a tale about a young boy, who uses his imagination to overcome his monstrous bully at night. Tired of being scared, Guillermo eventually takes matters into his own hands. Inspired by the lucid dreams of director Guillermo del Toro during childhood.
After viewing the film, Director Guillermo del Toro described Shhh as having “strong visuals and solid atmosphere.”
This short was featured in many film festivals , including winning:
Best Short and Production Design at the 2013 Leo Awards in Canada
Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi Short at the 2012 Rhode Island International Film Festival in the U.S.
Best Short Film at the 2012 Festival Internacional de Cine Puebla in Mexico
I did enjoy Shhh… tremendously and feels indeed there is a strong homage to Guillermo Del Toro’s work, especially Pan’s Labyrinth. Production design is of the highest quality for a short film. Enjoy it below!
