Such a brilliant little piece. Love the use of the computer screen with props from the office.
From the Vimeo Description:
Google Street View stop motion animation short made as a personal project by director Tom Jenkins.
Story: A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.
Music by the wonderfull Cinematic Orchestra (www.cinematicorchestra.com) and the track is Arrival of the Birds – please buy the fantastic album: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-crimson-wing-mystery-flamingos/id297787201
