Here’s an adorable stop-motion film voiced by Jenny Slate (the woman who swore in her first sketch on Saturday Night Live) and animated by Dean Fleischer-Camp. I love it so much; I’ve already watched it about 10 times. You can watch it here.
It’ll for sure be the cutest three minutes of your week.
Thanks to Donaldson for the tip.

This is fun.
I never really conceptualized Fred’s tunic as being a furry pelt. I guess it’s obvious it would be, but I just never saw it that way when I watched the cartoon. I was also a very dull child who believed that the way to tell time was to take whatever numbers the clock’s hands were pointing at, and add them together. It was 24 o’clock a lot for me back then.

Wicked little animated movie by Takeuchi Taijin, made by photographing stop-motion animation, then laying out the photos and photographing them, too. Supa coo.
In some ways this reminds me of Muto by BLU– I like how the characters define the world as they pass through it, and the clever use of space and geometry.

Beautifully- animated 3.5 min vid. Nice song, too.
The bird’s-eye view of the bed was an old fave of mine from my past life directing theatre. There’s really no other way to stage a bed scene- side views are annoying and look amateurish. A clean, stylish bird’s-eye, though? With smart details of how it gets constructed the moment before it’s needed? Yes. Wait a sec, do I miss directing plays? Maybe I do.
