Illustrator and animator Sugar Blood aka Pedro Allevato has been awarded the Communication Arts 2022 Award for Excellence for his incredible short film Darkroom, written, illustrated and directed by him.

“Dark Room” 3:40
“‘Dark Room’ is a short film about relationships and how we look back at happy memories. What I wished to convey was my belief that happiness does not exist without sadness and sadness does not exist without happiness. This is the principle behind homesickness, nostalgia and all the feelings mostly produced by memories. I hope the film helps viewers make peace with the above and accept it as part of everyone’s journey. It most definitely helped me.”
