FLIGHT OF FANCY

Every now and again YouTube justifies its normally dull and boring existence by bringing us a genuine gem.

One such rarity is Kiwi, a delicious little animated film by Dony Permedi, which runs for just 3 minutes 9 seconds but re-plays in the memory indefinitely...

Dony's Master's Thesis Animation, Kiwi was completed while he was at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. It brilliantly succeeds in achieving what Walt Disney used to refer to as "The Plausible Impossible" and, what's more, shows an imagination as inspired and unique as the heroic and determined vision of its central charcter.

Come! Let's fly...



I for one look forward to seeing more of Dony's work in the future; meanwhile, you can download Kiwi from Dony's Animation; and read more about the animator and the creation of Kiwi in an interview on Happy Junk.

Beautiful, touching and, ultimately, sad.

I got all dewy-eyed.

A beautiful piece of work. Reminded me of Opus' "A Wish For Wings That Work", but without the usual Bloom County craziness.

If only work like this had arrived at the studio. The regular "watch the showreels" lunches would have been far more entertaining.
