Gorgeous fluid motion and squash and stretch. I love how not staying on model wasn't too necessary and is what worked for this film! Also makes me realize how bad my squash and stretch really is. LOOK AT THAT FLUID MOTION. I have a problem where my stuff gets too stiff because I try too hard to stay on model. This is such true animation.

These are things 2D can do better than 3D or film. So many of us have forgotten that.

Too often, we try to make 2D too on model, too stiff, and too realistic. This video shows us that 2D doesn't have to mimic reality perfectly. If it sticks to its own style and strengths, it can shine brightly as an individual medium.
