A Tale of Momentum & Inertia from HouseSpecial on Vimeo.

This is a great little animated short that tells the tale of a giant boulder man and how it pays to be grateful for small favors.

It was directed by Kameron Gates and Kirk Kelley, this short film has won several awards, including
  • Best Minute Movie at Animation Block Party in Brooklyn,
  • Short Film Silver at The Australian Effects and Animation Festival,
  • Audience Favorite Award at the California International Animation Festival in the category 3D Animation, and
  • a nomination at the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
And, no doubt, other awards too numerous to mention. All right, so they aren't the Oscars. But it's tough out there on the festival circuit!

Anyway, this film "A Tale of Momentum and Inertia" is short, but epic. It has some sparkling animation. It is well worth the 70 seconds or so that it will take you to watch it.
