I wonder if buildings can feel.
And would different buildings feel differently? Surely they would be influenced by what occurs within their burdened, convoluted ribcages.
Perhaps they communicate to one another. Coming to understandings, having disputes about minor inconveniences that only these silent giants could comprehend.
While their tiny occupants go about their daily routines, unknowingly conducted by the walls that surround them. As they sit on their haunches, laughing, at just how little we are, and how little we know.

Animated shorts that we really dig. Some that are big and bold, some that are tiny and strange, but all of them resonate.

    A good portion of nostalgia and cheesy music in this lo-fi animation of an egg-shaped mans feelings of connection and disconnection throughout different universes.

    Hey guys,
    The short film that was made in my final year of university with George Warren is now on Vimeo it would be great to know what you think. ’Uki is a short stop frame animation following a lonely Inuit who struggles to survive after an oil tanker leaks oil off the coast of Alaska, killing all the wildlife in the area. A dark comedy about companionship, loneliness and pollution. Created and funded as part of the BBC and BFI's Animation 2018 scheme.’
