    different looks for their films.

    I can watch this over and over again. Superb!

    (My 2 year old son loves it too, so thats 39 years of age difference between the ages of the pleased audience in my house)

  • Bud

    Brilliant. Best short I’ve seen in a long time. Incredible CHARACTER animation from start to finish.

  • LOOOOOOOOOL! I really laughed at that. Love it. Well done to Bird Box, not familiar with any of their other stuff, but that was superb.

      Dear Mr Mike Scott! My RSA brother! Please go and educate yourself on all things animated by BirdBox ASAP! Ant Blades is an amazing animator and chap! You need to know this… there will be a text! ~;-]

    Love this. I first saw it as an animated .gif that looped back on itself over and over so that when the “camera” pulls back at the end the second wildebeest becomes the first and it reads as a hilarious cycle.

  • Highly predictable but very well executed. For sure the best part was the final wildebeest’s comment.
