The Ballad of Julio

An animated short about one starving man’s night of music, dancing and magical beans.

The Ballad of Julio is a comedy short created by a team of 5 recent graduates from The University of Hertfordshire, UK, as our final project. It took roughly 7 months and a lot of sleepless nights to complete, and we hope you enjoy it!
