Peak Condition is an interview-style short film about a delusional slice of toast and a naive but well-meaning raccoon. The maladjusted pair inhabit a universe in which Toast's unusual ideas about reality reign supreme.
A two-minute animated voyage through nature's life cycle, following the trials and tribulations of a humble apple seed.
The film was kindly funded by Adobe, made using their CS4 range of software. It was produced at Nexus Productions and features a soundtrack by Jape. It was made using a mixture of stop motion papercraft and 2D drawn animation.
