The Big Story

This is one of my favorites animated shorts. I love the whole thing, concept, designs, animation, lighting, etc. I am honored to have met one of the creators and director of this short, Tim Watts, who's one of the animators on the show I am working at the moment here at Dreamworks. It was animated twice, one in hand drawn and the final in stop motion which you can see below. I am sure you will enjoy this as much as I did. It is brilliant.


  1. Oh man that is awesome! Thanks for sharing this.

  2. This is actually pretty cool. Thanks for this.

  3. Oh wow - this is awesome! I am honored to be working with both Tim and yourself Sandro at DreamWorks and its so cool to see Tim's short film. His animation has been blowing me away every day.

    Keep posting more Sandro!

  4. I remember seeing both versions many years ago and thought it was pretty interesting how well they could translate the traditional hand-drawn figures to stop motion puppets. They did a fine job on these and for sometime later I kept thinking these guys went on to create the Lipton Brisk Iced Tea commercials but I see I was wrong anyway, but the similarities was pretty close.
