This animated short film tells the story of how the Vasquez Rocks got so... pointy, and the people that lived and worked there.
Mark Lindquist was the director; “We had a lot of ground to cover, a lot of story to tell. So we spent a lot of time boiling a million years into 2 seconds. We really had to go fast, to tell the story in geologic time but not be boring.” After that it was all execution. And I had Ramiro Olmos as lead animator, which always helps. He really knows story, not just pretty animations.”
