Address is Approximate – a Toy’s tale of dreaming on Google Streetview

November 23rd, 2011

Address Is Approximate

As the days get shorter, colder, you might be in the office on this Wednesday morning wishing you were somewhere else. But what if the office was your whole world? Director Tom Jenkins brings you a tale of how a “lonely office toy”, yearning for travel, gets to live his dream with the help of his office friends and Google Streetview in this beautifully moving stop motion short.

In case you’re wondering about the music, the piece is called Arrival of the Birds, from Cinematic Orchestra. It truly is cinematic, with intoxicating waves of sound that swell and ebb, sweeping you along for the ride.
