How can I resist with a title like “Cloudy”? Sam and Tury of Friends With You are the most prolific purveyors of cuteness around. Moments in this video make me think of David Wiesner’s Sector 7, the original Super Mario Bros. series for NES, and even the swat team at the end of Blues Brothers. Happy Friday!
Cloudy is a happy animated short by artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III of Friends With You. Welcome to the clouds!
This animated short is an exploration into the clouds; a sweet, visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you’ll wish to take over and over again.
FriendsWithYou explores animism, giving the main cast of characters a soul. The purpose of the piece is to transcend the viewer to a peaceful and joyous state. Clouds singing and performing their duties in a joyful manner show us that everything in our world has a role and a purpose.Both co-collectors were giggling pretty hard at this one.
