'Fluffy Mc Cloud' by Conor Finnegan

June 24, 2010
This gleeful short is Conor Finnegan's graduate film from IADT. It's a brilliant mixture of styles, with stop-motion, live action and hand drawn animation. It always impresses me that animators can make anything look adorable (robots, rats, the cockroach in WALL-E) and this cloud is no exception. From his freckles to his gap-toothed smile, Fluffy McCloud is pretty much the cutest creature I've seen all year. And, considering that Conor shot the whole thing in his attic on borrowed cameras, that's damn impressive.
