The video has a pretty good message (I think) -- be happy with yourself, just the way you are. And also, Barbie's a real b*tch.
The artist, Alex Heller, from Chicago, says of herself: 'Seventeen. Trapped in the suburbs. I root for the underdog.' Wait...seventeen?
...just goes to show (Mr Pixar) that you don't need a huge budget to produce an animation that has class, pathos and a real heart. We all want to belong but sometimes recreating ourselves to suit others will end in more rejection and hurt than if we just remain true to what we are. This wonderful short animation is composed of 1554 pictures, shot with a Nikon D60. Fantastic.Thanks RH for sharing this gem!
