Marsha Onderstijn is a Dutch animator who studied at St. Joost Kunstacademie, a fine arts university in the Netherlands, specializing in 2D animation. In her hand-drawn piece, "Life of Death," Marsha follows a day with Death, who paradoxically learns to fall in love with life. This moving short animation paints Death as a warm character, interested in the goings on of the living, and even feeling remorse for accidentally killing a flower. Marsha invites the viewer to question any fear of death, with old age happily giving into the release and quiet of the next phase of existence. After all, what is death, but the next phase of life?
