I feel I have to pass this one along and talk about it. I added it to my festival page. A great animated short. This is the first in a long time aside from Pixar where I feel I can just watch it over and over again. Great story, great charater design, beautiful set. I have to mention what an amazing job having an eight armed character walk/scuttle and look natural. Tough to do just two legs let alone more.
When watching take note of the expressions on the octopi.They convey so much emotion through their eyes alone. There are two or three shots where all they do is just stair and you can't help but laugh. Very entertaining and I am looking what else this team will come up with next!
