  • Saw this at school last year. Great short – I love the stream-of-consciousness style and the wry observations are are very relatable. Go Johnny go!

  • Benjamin DS

    Wow! This was great. Very original work.

  • I’m going to go fix a cup of tea and then dig into my freelance…after I check my email.

  • Chuck R.

    Procrastination is leaving a pointless comment on Cartoon Brew.

  • I was going to go for a jog, but then I saw this.

    I think this will be the first thing I show my students when classes start next week. A+.

    NOW I’m going for a jog.

  • A friend of mine in college once told me that procrastination is like masturbation: it feels good while you’re doing it, but in the end you’re only f@#king yourself.

  • Doug

    He’s finding his filmmaking voice and more power to him.

  • That was a great short!

  • Evidently, he didn’t followed what he preaches (exercising procrastination) when completing this short :)

  • Anna

    that sure is a TON of work, for such a ‘lazy’ concept… WOW!!

  • Best animation about procrastination is ‘Getting Started’ though:

  • Procrastination is watching really good short films such as this on the Internet.

  • pat

    procrastination is… um… lemme get back to you on that

  • Reminds me of “Getting Started” by Richard Condie…

  • Chuck R.

    I was thinking of “Getting Started” as well, and the flipping TV channels reminded me of those crazy TV snippets in “The Big Snit”

    Maybe Kelly is a Condie fan?

  • Very nicely done, I want to see more mixed media things like this.
