‘Mite’, An Animated Short That Takes Place in the Carpet of Overlook Hotel From ‘The Shining’

In “Mite,” animator Walter Volbers dives into the hallway carpet outside of room 217 (the number from the book, not the movie) in the Overlook Hotel from The Shining to explore the dust mites that inhabit that world. According to Volbers, the three-and-a-half minute short is the culmination of nearly 10 years of work.

Yes, this seems loooong, but this was an ‘on and off’ project done aside from my day job as a CG artist. And most time was wasted having to redo the shading with Arnold. Summed up to an eight hour workday the animation of the Mite was completed in two weeks.
