Beautiful rotoscoped short film on the fable of the Beale cipher

The Thomas Beale Cipher is a ten-minute short film from director Andrew Allen; it tells the story of the Beale ciphers, notorious encrypted documents that supposedly hold the key to great wealth. The film makes use of very beautiful rotoscoping techniques that really stand out (more so, alas, than the writing, which is a little loose) and held my attention throughout.
