If you’ve been to the movies recently, you might have managed to catch a little bit of magic from Portland’s House Special, the animation studio that recently spun out from Portland’s LAIKA—makers of Coraline, Paranorman, and The Boxtrolls. If you haven’t caught it yet, you might want to take a minute to watch what The Atlantic calls “the best 71 second animation you’ll watch today.”
Of course if you watch it on The Atlantic, you’ll need more than 71 seconds because you’ll have to sit through a preroll ad that you can’t fast forward or skip.
I know you’re busy digging out from your holiday. So here it is. Enjoy.
For more of their work, visit House Special.
