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.
