For a school assignment, I was told to create a cartoon without sound (the music doesn't count). Characters without eyes, mouths, or any face at all. The characters had to be simple shapes and interact with each other. The goal was to make the characters express themselves through their posture and gesture alone. I also had to explore the environment, gravity, and physics. I think it turned out alright. Not top 50 of all time quality but pretty good nonetheless. Enjoy.

Music: The Entertainer by Scott Joplin and George Gershwin

Mind candy. Brilliant. Easy to watch and entertaining as all hell.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Fun and smart

A classic example of a movie not needing incredible graphics but being driven by wonderful ideas; very funny, unpredictable and widening in scope as it goes on like the best of old cartoon shorts.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


I liked that you messed with my perception of the set. Once I thought I knew how to interpret it, I realized the ground was ceiling. After reading your goals for this animation, I'd say you nailed it. It's amazing that you can understand a story just through the gestures of shapes.
