Animation: Weird and wonderful short Wish List is well worth a watch

Posted by Rob Alderson,

What separates us from the animals (yeah I’m getting all philosophical on yo’ ass on a Monday afternoon – deal with it)? Is it that we wear clothes? Or invented the meal deal? Well yes, and yes, but there’s other stuff too, including a concept of desires that extend beyond our immediate existential needs. Enter Wish List an enjoyably weird exploration of this idea from animator Griff and illustrator Scot Garrett. Its rogue gallery of oddball characters articulating their innermost dreams is compelling, funny, poignant, unsettling and wonderfully, undeniably weird.
