Address Is Approximate

THE STORY: "A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View."

I love, love, love this heart-warming animated stop motion short that was made with the help of stills from Google Street View. Totally reminds me of the now-famous Spike Jonze's IKEA "Lamp" commercial and the slightly-less-famous Knorr Sidekicks' "Salty" commercial. Anyway, this was very well-executed and touching work by director, Tom Jenkins. Loved it. Track was Arrival of the Birds by Cinematic Orchestra.
