Much Better Now

We see some pretty cool stuff everyday at COTW, but we really enjoyed this!! "Much Better Now" by Salon Alpin (Portugal) is a cute and imaginative stop-motion animation short film about a bookmark (yes, bookmark!) that is stuck in a forgotten book that is one day knocked over by the wind. It experiences its environment by surfing the pages that turn in to ocean waves, enjoying the ride of its life. We’re sure anyone will enjoy this! Watch below…

There is an interesting insight into how they made the short film on their website at: http://muchbetternow.salonalpin.net/makingof.html
