Melbourne’s Rubber House are one of those animation studios who, much like Kate Winslet (debatably) have not managed to do a single bad film to date. Predominantly making videos for, Gotye, the band responsible for bringing the general public out of a perilous auto-tune coma, Rubber House push music videos out of the club realm, and into the world of fun.
Their latest creation is “a coming of age about a sexually naive elephant and her co-dependant crow,” which will not fail to amuse. Look at that little walrus slouching along the sand while the ducks race in and out of tiny houses. Dream! Thank you Greg Sharp and Ivan Dixon, may Rubber House continue to make videos like this – as far as I can tell no one else seems to be.
