A Reaction to ''Roll"

     About a week ago I got a message from my fellow animation friend Edric Yamamoto saying that his son Grey loves watching "Roll". Apparently he watches it at least once a week, and so Edric recorded him watching. His reaction made me so happy, and it made it worth it all over again.

     As Edric put it in his message to me, "If you can make a 2-year old laugh and dance and watch it in its entirety over and over...I'd call it a smashing success." Never would I have thought that a simple story about a ball could have such a reaction by so many different people. Seeing this was incredibly humbling, and it made me so proud of both myself and the other animators who brought this little red ball to life. Thank you for all of the support.

Here's the original film. It's at 600 views! So cool.

  1. That video is so awesome. I would definitely enter it into competitions if you can. Also. Grey's reaction to it is so adorable.
