I first saw this incredible animation a few months ago and I’ve been wanting to post it up here ever since. Last week, the film’s director Mikey Please (who, quite fabulously, recently changed his middle name to ‘Yes’) finally released it onto the interweb.
I won’t say too much about it, save that it tells the story of a scientist who’s obsessed with the speeding up of time as he gets older. It features the vocal talents of the actor David Cann and backing music by Mikey’s brother Benedict Please, and it won gazillions of awards last year, including the BAFTA for Best Short Animation and the top prize at the Imagine Science Film Festival, .
So find yourself a spare 9 minutes, hit the maximise button, sit back (but don’t fall off your chair), and soak up the animated loveliness.
If you repeat the word ‘fly’ for long enough it sounds like you’re saying ‘life’. This is of no help to Peter. His answers lie in the brain of a beetle.
