Nashville-based animator Chris Johnson created this piece. The story behind it is sweet:
“It is inspired by Yuri Norstein, Lotte Reiniger, The Science of Sleep, and many other things, but more than anything by the girl I am going to marry and our special relationship. There is plenty of symbolism in the short, but the theme I’m getting to is where one’s heart is. She lives in Mexico which is far from where I live in Tennessee, and I’d go to the moon to get her.”
Sadly, I’m still waiting for somebody to create a cartoon about how special I am.
