Not much to say in this, all in all, this isnt something anyone can watch. As a child, this would have given me nightmares, and to be honest, im quite scared right now. But i liked this short 2min film, probably because... i really dislike things i cant comprehend and, wow, i understood nothing.. because there was nothong to understand.

~The colors will flow throught out my body for the next month.

Watch this for a unique journey unlike anything youve ever seen before. Good luck.

It's a simple student animation from Yamamura. The designs and animation are more than adequate, but it's mostly paint-based morphing animation of various critters into other critters and shapes on a blank-white backdrop.

Given the title Natural History and some of the imagery, it looks like it charts a course through mythology, ecology, and cosmology in very crude ways. I winced a little bit at the Vitruvian Man overlay, which feels kind of sophomoric, introducing a very concrete idea within this free-flowing framework. ...
