11 short films, 55 min in total

What happens when we let our imagination run wild? And we throw a healthy dash of creativity into the mix? Why, we get fantastic results such as these short films and music videos made using a wide range of animation techniques: cartoons created out of beautiful animated drawings, stop-motion films using plasticine and toys and pixillated objects and people. Small experiments with original, fresh storylines and pictures.
