A little robot made of scraps wonders though the woods until he comes across a sign that will help him discover where he belongs. Yet when he gets there he may not find what he is expecting.

This was Robert Showalter’s senior thesis at Ringling College of Art and Design. He was responsible for everything you see – except the music, which is supplied by Cody Cook.

I like the colors that Showalter has used in this piece - and the empathy which he has given the character of the little robot - something which is difficult to pull off in animation.  A sign of much bigger things to come in the future from Mr Showalter, we hope!
